RARE FIRST SEPARATE PRINTING of Trotsky's Lessons of October 1917 that ultimately gave the immediate impulse to the deletion of his position as leader of War Commissariat of the USSR. The controversial 1917 uroki Oktyabry which previously appeared as the preface to the first volume of Trotsky's collected works in October 1924. He wrote this history of the struggle within the Bolshevik Party from February to October 1917 just months after the Communist Party failed to seize power in Germany in the fall of 1923. It was immediately denounced by Josef Stalin and his henchmen. Leon Trotsky, one of the most eloquent of the Russian revolutionaries, wrote on art and literature as well as political issues. Although a hero of the Russian Civil War as Commander of the Red Army, he was expelled from the Communist Party during a power struggle with Stalin. He was deported in 1929 and assassinated on Stalin's orders in Mexico in 1940. His works were not available again in the Soviet Union until the 1980s. The last chapter of this book is signed "15. September 1924." - Visit our website for additional images and information.
