Trotsky in 1917 is a collection of new translations, many translated for the first time, of Leon Trotsky’s writings from 1917, the year of the Russian revolution.
Trotsky, together with Lenin, was a leading figure in the revolution, chairing the Petrograd Soviet and playing a key role during October, and the building of the new soviet power.
These articles, essays, speeches and resolutions give a keen insight and feel for the revolution and one of its leaders. This collection is an essential reference for any who want to understand the 1917 Russian revolution.
