Transcript to grips with the principal theoretical error which sums up and motivates the opportunist tactics pur' sued in recent years in the internal questions of the Soviet Union as well as in the International move' ment: the revisionist theory of socialism in one country. Basing himself on the fundamental teachings of Marx and Lenin, Trotsky turns all his guns on this new revisionism which has been smuggled into the Communist International since Lenin died to its great detriment. He attacks it from all sides, tearing away the covering of falsely applied quotations from Lenin and reveals its non- Leninist essence, battering down the whole, struct' ure of falsification and scholasticism upon which it is built. Trotsky not only annihilates the new revisionism with the hammer blows of Marxism and Leninism. He also exposes down to their roots the tactical errors connected with it and points the way for their avoidance in the future. His criticism is a searchlight in the fog of official propaganda, scholasticism and administrative decree which has been substituted for the ideological leadership of the Executive Committee of the Communist Inter- national in earlier years. Trotsky restores the best traditions and standards of Marxist and Leninist thought. He applies them to the burning ques' tions of the day and shows the path to which we must return. With a sure command of the theoretical weapons forged by Marx and Lenin and with an interna' tional sweep and perspective equalled by none since Lenin, Trotsky grapples with the key prob' lems of world magnitude. The diverse and knotty questions are tied together and shown as parts of a single whole with the inter-relation of the parts explained—and always from the standpoint of revolutionary perspectives and the revolutionary solution of the world contradictions.
