  10. Lessons of October (ePub)

    Lessons of October (ePub)

    Trotsky wrote this book in the wake of the failure of the German Communist Party to capitalize on the revolutionary opportunity present in 1923. This essay marked an important development in the struggle by Trotsky against the degeneration of the Bolshevik Party under the leadership of Stalin, Kamenev and Zinoviev. In it the Bolshevik leader examines the critical role of working class leadership in the October Revolution in Russia. Trotsky insisted that the Communist International must assimilate the lessons of the experiences of 1917 or face disaster. This book provoked a furious response by the growing bureaucracy.
