The classic account of the social, economic, and political dynamics of the first socialist revolution as told by one of its central leaders. Trotsky describes how, under Leninâ€™s leadership, the Bolshevik Party led the working class, peasantry, and oppressed nationalities to overturn the monarchist regime of the landlords and capitalists and bring to power a government of the workers and peasantsâ€”one that set an example for toilers the world over. Nowhere are those world-shattering events explained with more clarity and insight than in this powerful account.
