Description: 
On August 20, 1940, Leon Trotsky’s life was brutally ended when a Stalinist agent brought an ice pick crashing down on his head. Among the works left unfinished was the second part of his biography of the man who ordered his assassination. Wellred Books proudly presents a work eighty years in the making, Leon Trotsky's unfinished masterpiece: Stalin. Trotsky’s Stalin is unique in Marxist literature in that it attempts to explain some of the most decisive events of the 20th century, not just in terms of epoch-making economic and social transformations, but in the individual psychology of one of the protagonists in a great historical drama. It is a fascinating study of the way in which the peculiar character of an individual, his personal traits, and psychology, interacts with great events.
