This book presents an historical analysis of Trotsky, his role, and actions prior to the October Revolution in Russia and after the revolution. It shows the roots of Trotskyism and points out clearly its Anti-Leninist character. Throughout this work, Olgin breaks down the fundamentally wrong position of Trotsky on the basic questions of the proletarian revolution, socialist construction in the U.S.S.R. and the revolutionary movements in the colonies.
Olgin lays bare the nondialectical, schematic approach of Trotsky to such questions as the social forces in the proletarian revolution and the role of the Communist Party. He also exposes Trotsky’s theory of “permanent revolution” as a distortion of the Marxist-Leninist concept.
