About this book
A lucid and judicious evocation of Trotsky's life. 'Rubinstein handles complex issues sensitively in this accessible introduction to a flawed but fascinating 20th century giant' "Times Higher Education"
Born Lev Davidovich Bronstein in southern Ukraine, Trotsky was an effective military strategist and an adept diplomat, who staked the fate of the Bolshevik revolution on the meagre foundation of a Europe-wide Communist upheaval. In this book, Trotsky emerges as a brilliant yet flawed man.
