Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A short, interesting book (pamphlet?) in which Trotsky applies the teachings of Marx to American capitalism in the midst of the Great Depression and on the eve of WWII.

His thesis is that, far from irrelevant to the time and place, Marxism may have found its poster child in American capitalism.

Although some of his predictions have failed to come to pass, you will be surprised how contemporary his analysis of our foreign policy and liberal attempts to reform and "fix" a fundamentally flawed system sound.

His thoughts on the causes of the rise of Fascism, the stance of Britain and France in the pre-war period and the cause of the coming war also show him to be an insightful student of history.

It is a quick, clear read and I highly recommend.

More About the Author

Howard Zinn (1922-2010) was a historian, playwright, and activist. He wrote the classic A People's History of the United States, "a brilliant and moving history of the American people from the point of view of those ... whose plight has been largely omitted from most histories" (Library Journal). The book, which has sold more than two million copies, has been featured on The Sopranos and Simpsons, and in the film Good Will Hunting. In 2009, History aired The People Speak, an acclaimed documentary co-directed by Zinn, based on A People's History and a companion volume, Voices of a People's History of the United States.

Zinn grew up in Brooklyn in a working-class, immigrant household. At 18 he became a shipyard worker and then flew bomber missions during World War II. These experiences helped shape his opposition to war and passion for history. After attending college under the GI Bill and earning a Ph.D. in history from Columbia, he taught at Spelman, where he became active in the civil rights movement. After being fired by Spelman for his support for student protesters, Zinn became a professor of Political Science at Boston University, were he taught until his retirement in 1988.

Zinn was the author of many books, including an autobiography, You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train, the play Marx in Soho, and Passionate Declarations. He received the Lannan Foundation Literary Award for Nonfiction and the Eugene V. Debs award for his writing and political activism.
