The New York Times Book Review
"Probably the most readable, significant and interesting book that has thus far come from the prolific pen of the former leader of the Red Army.... Trotsky has an intimate knowledge of and a complete command of his subject.... [T]he canvas he fills is so broad and well-balanced as to be highly instructive even to those who do not limit their investigations of Soviet affairs to the reports of the correspondents.... In a series of brief but lucid chapters the author traces the remarkable evolution through which the Soviet State has passed since 1917.... Trotsky's narrative bring[s] to the reader an echo of the passionate discussion that has taken place behind the closed doors of the high Communist bodies."
"Of all Stalin's opponents Trotsky alone has produced a systematic and comprehensive critique.... [O]ne of the most influential books of this century.... a classic of Marxist literature."
New York Times
"An important and devastating study...."
