Broue left/split/expelled from the CCI, the "Lambertists" in 1988 or so. He 
still edits the Cahier. He is probably the foremost Trotskyist Historian alive 
today, an honor he probably shares with his former comrade, Jean Jaque-marie, 
who is known as France's foremost Soviet History scholar.

Recently Broure, with out an organization for a decade and a half, has been 
slowly 'recruited' into the Committee for a Marxist International, the tendency 
associated with Ted Grant and Alan Woods in the UK. He is, along with the CMI, 
helping to retranslate many of Leon Trotsky's more well known works.
