For the revolutionary socialists, the Trotskyists, it has been a very long march through the 20th century and beyond, and over sometimes uncharted, unexpected, terrain. Central to it has been the fight against Stalinism, the attempt to understand it, the battle to wipe the labour movement clean of it. The Fate volume 2 surveys and documents for the first time the formative debates in the 1940s between the two main strands into which Trotskyism divided. Second edition December 2015: 798 pages.

The Fate of the Russian Revolution Volume 1 was published in 1998. Volume 3 is currently being prepared.
