Praise

“In the 1930s, Trotsky, with a handful of followers, attempted to block the path of Stalin’s relentless hurricane of betrayal and murder. His epic defence of the soul of the Revolution against its bureaucratic executioners was a torchlight in the storm. In one of the very greatest modern biographies, Isaac Deutscher redeems the legacy of this astonishing revolutionary and humanist thinker.”
—Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums

“The three volumes of Isaac Deutscher’s life of Trotsky … were for me the most exciting reading of the year. Surely this must be counted among the greatest biographies in the English language.”
—Graham Greene

“It made a very deep impression on me and gave me a love of political biography for the rest of my life.”
—Tony Blair

“He has told the story more accurately and with fuller detail than ever before. His book is compulsory reading for anyone interested in the history of Soviet Russia and of international communism.”
—A.J.P. Taylor, New Statesman

“This is the critical voice the velvet revolution faded out. The republication of Deutscher’s classic trilogy is good news for a new generation who want to know what went wrong with communist-style socialism.”
—Sheila Rowbotham

“Masterly trilogy on the life of Leon Trotsky.”
—Alan Johnson
