Author: Leon Trotsky
This book is a collection of articles and speeches by Leon Trotsky related to the period of 1925-27 and the defeat of the second Chinese Revolution.
It begins with a full-scale attack on Stalin's justification for the policy imposed on the Chinese Communist Party that led to this defeat.
The period covered is a decisive one; while dominated by the struggle in China, it also marked the intensification of the attack on the Left Opposition in Russia.
This book sheds light on this crucial period of history but its principal concern is with the tactics and strategy of world revolution.
It is part of the continuous struggle for revolutionary theory and practice waged by Trotsky and the Left Opposition and is vital today for successfully concluding the world socialist revolution.
