Leon Trotsky

Paul Le Blanc — Consistent partisans of actual democracy insist that people have the right to shape their own future. This includes the right to struggle for self-determination.
Seiya Morita — The English translation of Leon Trotsky’s “1905” is brilliant as a whole, but it has a problem, in particular when it comes to the translation of his repeated used of the term “hegemony”.
Gavin Gatenby — In the months before his assassination by a Stalinist agent, Leon Trotsky wrote three important articles on the issue of Ukraine. So resolutely did Trotsky support Ukraine’s right to independence that these articles probably gave an added impetus to Josef Stalin’s determination to murder his old rival.
