In Defense of Leon Trotsky (second edition)
$15.95
Add to Cart
This work contains a devastating refutation of biographies of Trotsky published in recent years by three British historians: Ian Thatcher, Geoffrey Swain and Robert Service. Through a marshaling of facts and detailed analysis, North explains that these works continue the campaign of historical falsification against Trotsky first initiated by the Stalinist bureaucracy in the 1920s. In particular, North’s refutation of Service’s biography has, in the words of Germany historian Hermann Weber, exposed Service as a one who “deals in lies, falsifications of history, dubious references and even anti-semitic prejudices.”

The significantly expanded edition contains a new foreword, four new chapters and two appendices. The additional material includes three lectures for German audiences in Berlin, Leipzig and Mainz, written as answers to apologists for Service’s biography. The fourth chapter, an essay on the 70th anniversary of the assassination of Trotsky, is a paper that was delivered at the 2010 conference of the Association of Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies.

Hegel, Marx, Engels & the Origins of Marxism
$3.00
Add to Cart
In this review of Duquesne University professor Tom Rockmore’s book, Marx after Marxism, David North answers Rockmore’s distortions and falsifications of the relationship between Marx and the German idealist philosopher, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

In particular, North takes issue with the claim by Rockmore that Marx’s lifelong collaborator Friedrich Engels distorted Marx’s views and falsely presented him as a materialist. Behind Rockmore’s distortion of the positions of Marx and Engels is an attempt to remove the revolutionary essence of Marxism and recast Marx as an advocate of reformist politics.

In the course of this polemic, North sets out in a positive manner Marx’s materialist reworking of the Hegelian dialectic. Among the works North discusses are Marx’s Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right, Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844, and The Holy Family.

The essay in this pamphlet was originally published in 2006. Learn More
The Sky Between the Leaves: Film Reviews, Essays and Interviews 1992 - 2012
$19.95
Add to Cart
A unique collection of of film reviews, essays on film and interviews with directors and film critics by WSWS Art and Culture Editor David Walsh spanning the 20 years from 1992-2012.

The film reviews contained in this volume cover a wide spectrum—from James Cameron’s Titanic and Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ to the award-winning A Separation by Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi and films of emerging Chinese directors. Several essays discuss the work of talented and principled artists of the 1930s and 40s who sought to bring a sense of humanity to their work. Walsh details the fate of many who fell victim to the anti-communist McCarthyite witch-hunts of the 1950s.

A recurring theme in these writings is the profound effect this historical period has had on Hollywood filmmaking in the ensuing years. Walsh consistently returns to the crisis of contemporary filmmaking and the inability, or unwillingness, of so many of today’s directors to see the world as it is and feel compelled to grapple with social reality as millions experience it.

Stalin's Terror of 1937-1938: Political Genocide in the USSR (paperback)
$24.95
Add to Cart
This volume examines the bloodiest period of the Stalinist repression of political opposition in the Soviet Union, debunking the myth that the Great Purges were merely the product of Stalin's paranoia and had no overriding political logic. Through a meticulous examination of original sources, including archival documents only made available for research in the 1990s, Professor Vadim Rogovin argues that the ferocity of the mass repression was directly proportional to the intensity of resistance to Stalin within the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU), particularly the opposition inspired by and associated with the exiled Bolshevik leader Leon Trotsky.
