Author: Leon Trotsky
The issues raised in Leon Trotsky's 'Lessons of October', written in 1924, are as important today as when the book was written.
Trotsky was already engaged in an internal party struggle within the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and the Communist International against the conservative, bureaucratic trend developing around Joseph Stalin.
Trotsky's book. as he wrote himself, was directed particularly to the younger generation which had not experienced the struggles of the October revolution directly.
