History of the Russian Revolution by Leon Trotsky
Pathfinder Press| 1980 | ISBN: 0873488296 | 360 pages | PDF | 5 Mb
Published for the ninetieth anniversary of the 1917 Russian Revolution, this edition of Leon Trotsky's masterpiece tells the epic story of the remarkable events that transformed the history of Russia-and the world-forever. Leon Trotsky was a leader of the 1917 Russian Revolution and is author of 'My Life' and 'The Revolution Betrayed'.
If you're looking for a light read, Trotsky's History of Russian Revolution is not the way to go by any means.
But, despite its length, and despite the enormity of its topic, this is an amazingly accessible and engrossing account of one of the modern world's most important political and historical events, written by one of its main players.
There are certainly some parts that are more difficult than others, and some where clearly Trotsky assumes an understanding of what happened in Russia during 1917 - an expectation of his readers that would have been utterly reasonable for the audience he was writing for, at the time he was writing, but which at times can be a bit confusing for a Westerner reading it almost 100 years later. But this is only occasionally frustrating and there is, in any event, a very helpful set of appendices and glossaris at the back that help you know who's who and what's what.
