In Defence of Marxism
In Defence of Marxism is correctly regarded as one of Trotsky's finest classics. It is a product of a sharp polemic within the American Trotskyist movement during the period 1939-40. This dispute touched on the very fundamentals of Marxism. It was for this reason that Trotsky himself participated in the form of a series of articles and letters that are brought together in this volume.
The issues covered concern the essence of Marxist theory and deal with such questions as:
* The class nature of the Soviet state.
* The defense of the Soviet Union against imperialist attack.
* Bolshevik principles of organization.
* Dialectical Materialism.
This is Trotsky at his best: profound, concise and theoretically razor sharp.
