The last of three volumes recording the central political battle in the Soviet Union following the death of Bolshevik leader V.I. Lenin in 1924.
In this volume Trotsky draws the balance sheet of the struggle of the United Opposition bloc with Gregory Zinoviev and Lev Kamenev; calls for resisiting the pressure to capitulate to the Stalin regime; and outlines a course of taking the fight for Bolshevik politics into Communist parties around the world.
