The Trotsky reappraisal( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1988 the Director of State Archives in Moscow, Yuri Afanasyev, declared that in the vital process of re-examining Soviet history Trotsky is 'the biggest blank spot'. Leon Trotsky is certainly one of the most important, talented and enigmatic figures in twentieth-century world history. In The Trotsky Reappraisal an exciting mix of Soviet scholars and Western academics offer a pioneering reassessment of Trotsky's personality, his role in the Revolution and the ensuing civil war, and his opposition to Stalinism. Soviet historians have been released from decades of what one Russian has called 'ignorant certainty', and are now seeking to re-examine many key questions, including the process by which Stalin eliminated opposition and consolidated his power. Such investigations lead in many directions but must include the exploration of the intellectual richness of Marxism - long concealed by Stalinist dogma. In this context, too, the reappraisal of Trotsky is overdue

The formation of the economic thought of Karl Marx, 1843 to Capital by Ernest Mandel( Book )

13 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernest Mandel traces the development of Marx's economic ideas from the Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts to the completion of the Grundrisse. In a series of crystalline chapters, he provides an overview of subjects central to Marxist economic theory. Mandel focuses on Marx's concept of alienation, which gained much currency among Marxists in the twentieth century, and traces the development of debates surrounding the labour theory of value, and Marx's writings on communism and "crisis." These discussions remain pertinent today, and these texts vital to all those who wish to interpret and to change the world.--
