Let s get this out of the way yes Trotsky s history is self serving both as a defense of the October Revolution and as a prop for Trotsky s own status as a revolutionaryBut this gets five stars for a number of reasons first and foremost because Trotsky writes a gripping narrative that delves deep into the sociology that underpins 1917 But the real treasure in this read is the historical significance has any other prime mover of such a massive historical event written an analytical history of that event Other than memoirs to my knowledge nothing else comes closeTrotsky s greatest strength as an analyst is his understanding of the sociology of pre revolutionary Russia and the social forces which propelled the revolution forward His weakness and the weakness of Bolshevism in general is his blind faith in the science of history and revolution that a scientific view of history and application of revolutionary techniue could only produce such a result This mechanistic view of society and how to manipulate it is the seed from which the totalitarian state grewThis is a historical document of huge importance that also makes for a great read Absolutely essential

I feel like I just hiked a barren mountain in a cold rain alone what a tug this book I sure hope Trotsky was a better revolutionary than an author Given how his life ended that may be a toss upWhat did I learn from Leon I learned the Russian revolution was pure chaos In the end whoever aggregated the most rifles machine guns ard cars soldiers and oddly bicycles prevailed in this case the Bolsheviks It s interesting that given Russia s large land mass the defining historical events were limited to Petrograd and to a lesser extent MoscowDid the Tsar and the landed aristocracy deserve their fates Given their unwillingness to come to terms with the profound economic and social distortions in Russian life it s hard to rouse much sympathy for them The pressures building among the masses could with a modest amount of enlightenment have probably been vented Entrance into war of course provided an accelerant Putting guns into the hands of large numbers of the disaffected is I suppose a really really bad idea And there was no shortage of disaffectedAs a writer Trotsky s prose is unrelentingly dogmatic and formulaic To Trotsky Russian history is rather the movement of concrete polyhedrons with affixed names like peasants bourgeoisie factory workers Bolsheviks Mensheviks Kadets kulaks Social Revolutionaries Cossacks etc And how many times did Trotsky dwell on Irakli Tsereteli who as best I can tell is deserving of a minor footnote at most in the saga of Russia s revolutionWell I m finished and those it seems are the kindest words I can render for Leon Trotsky s History of the Russian RevolutionI m giving this title three stars only because of the historical importance of the first hand account It really deserves a uarantine Stay Away signread & download Þ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Þ Leon Trotsky
