'Trotsky and the Origins of Trotskyism'

Alfred Rosmer, Boris Souvarine, Emile Fabrol, Antoine Clavez 
Introduction by Al Richardson

Trotsky and the Origins of Trotskyism highlights the role of Alfred 
Rosmer in the early opposition to Stalinism inside the Comintern and 
the French Communist Party, from which he was expelled in 1924. The 
book includes translations of recent articles from the French 
theoretical journal Prométhée as well as extracts from Rosmer¹s own 
oppositional magazine La Révolution prolétariennne from the 1920s, in 
which he and his allies deal with the bureaucratisation of the 
Communist Party and Stalin¹s victory over the Old Bolsheviks. The 
final chapters, entitled On the Planet Without a Visa, were written 
by Rosmer, a close acqaintance of Trotsky for 35 years, in the early 
1950s to complete Trotsky¹s autobiography My Life. They cover the 
years of exile until his death in Mexico in 1940 and incorporate 
Trotsky¹s own words to describe his personal fortunes and the essence 
of his thought.
