This is the latest "what's new" of the year. We wish all our readers a
Red New Year 2001. We will be taking a (well deserved) holiday break and
will be back on January 2nd.

- Marxism and Art - An introduction to Trotsky's writings on Art and
Revolution
  http://www.trotsky.net/trotsky_year/marxism_and_art.html

Together with this article by Alan Woods we are providing our readers
with the on-line sources of Trotsky's writings on Art, Culture and
Revolution. Where these are not available we give the reference to the
printed text. This is the last month of the Trotsky year, but we intend
to continue the publication of material in this web site to make it a
central resource on the ideas and life of Leon Trotsky. To close the
year
we also recommend the reading of Trotsky's political testament (Marxism
