    I have my copy already. There is not need to read the two Volumes of Leon Trostky, or his biography My life, to understand what really took  place in Russia since the very beginning until 1989, this book is more than enough.This books debunks the myth and the lies of the so called socialist bolshevik revolution that most leftists are celebrating this month, when in reality socialism would have been in a  much better stand without the Bolshevik revolt. I have said the same expression in front of many groups, and meeting  and they have dropped their jaws to the floorTo tell them that the so called Bolshevik was a coup, or a bourgoise revolution would be  a blasphemy, it is like telling to a Christiam that Jesus never existed,  and the Socialist Party had the courage to do that since the very beginning, and during the times of StalinismThe  book named as the History of the Communist Party of Russia published during Stalin is a total distortion too. Probably, Isaac Deutscher should have read these articles before publishing his three books on Trotsky, or his book on Stalin

    Don't fancy the SWP or Historical Materialism ones but can go to the ICC/CWO one on Saturday with a dozen or so copies if I can avoid the crowds on the way celebrating the First World Slaughter..

    Yeah, I might have been able to help out but suddenly I have bigger fish to fry this weekend.

    To reply to message #46 from jondwhite, I'm sorry but since the book appeared, I have not had  time to do anything about this.I may be able to get a news release together early next week.  In the meantime if you wish to contact any yourself, please if you have time send a list of them and a copy of the text you send to the Media Committee.Please direct any communications for the Media Committee to our email address spgb.media@worldsocialism.org. They will then come directly into our personal email accounts. I do look at the Forum every few days but when and whether I see any particular message may be akin to  ‘Russian roulette’. For the Media Committee

    I think the Socialist Party should publish a similar book on Vladimir Lenin. We are the one political organization who has debunked the myth of Leninism

    It should be easy enough to do, MarcosSearch our online archives for relevant articles and perhaps scan some articles still to be transcribed to the internet. copy and paste perhaps re-edit and re-format – then draft an introduction, and hey presto, we have one book. A similar approach can be done for a range of specific topics.BTW, will our new head office copier/printer be capable of producing pamphlets and short books?

    I know that, but that is not my point. I am talking about a pamphlet compiled by the socialist party to be purchased by workers from different parts of the world

    The current one can and has produced pamphlets but not of all that good quality. The new one is more a colour printer and scanner.

    For the record, I went to this meeting but only sold one copy of the Russia pamphlet. But I did sell 9 copies of the Martov pamphlet (which is very suitable for "Left Communists" and almost aimed at them).

    Ironically, the pamphlet of Martov shows that Lenin was wrong and that he was an opportunists and an intolerant, and it also shows that the Russian revolution was a coup, and it was not a socialist revolution as the Leninists have claimed for several years. The opposition to Leninism and the Bolsheviks started before  the so called socialist revolution. The concept of Soviet means council, it was nothing special, it was created due to the fact that in Russia they never had a bourgoise democracy. The Russian peasant only wanted Land, or an agrarian reform, it was the same politically aim of the Cuabn peasants, it was another pro-bourgoise revolt
