Trotsky was one of the 20th century’s key figures: co-leader of the Russian revolution and tireless fighter against Stalin’s counter-revolution.

The timely republication of an important biography is a chance for a new generation to discover what Trotsky stood for. And, PETER TAAFFE writes, of his vital relevance today.
