2049 The Prophet Unarmed Trotsky: 1921-1929 by Isaac Deutscher (read 25 Jan 1987) This volume covers from 1921 to Trotsky's expulsion from Russian in 1929. He strikes me as really dumb, even though Deutscher is positively hagiographical about him. His opposition to Stalin was from the left--he was critical of Stalin for being too soft on the kulaks and not socialistic enough. The book goes on and on at great length about the disputes between Communist theorists. It is boring, in a way, especially since Deutscher just assumes everybody is viewing what he says from his own Marxist viewpoint. A lot of talk about "primitive socialist accumulation," and a lot of effort to tell what is happening to rhe Russian Revolution by comparing events in the French Revolution to events after 1917. One cannot say Russia would have been better off if Trotsky had won his struggle with Stalin. ( )
