James P Cannon

The Struggle for a Proletarian Party

$24.95

James P Cannon, founder of the American Trotskyist movement and a close collaborator of Leon Trotsky, wrote this book as part of the struggle against the petty bourgeois opposition led by Max Shachtman and James Burnham that emerged in 1939 following the signing of the Stalin-Hitler pact.

This book was written as Trotsky waged a political struggle against the conceptions advanced by Burnham and Shachtman, who declared that the Soviet Union could no longer be defined as a workers state, even a degenerated one.

Cannon takes up the organizational conceptions advanced by the petty bourgeois minority, especially the claim that the majority headed by Cannon was an example of “bureaucratic conservatism,” which Cannon showed had nothing in common with the Leninist conception of the Marxist party.
