The September 17th Movement

 

       September 17th Movement

2012?

Let's make this an annual event. The Ultimate Goal & Single Issue is to mobilize A Million PEOPLE to non-violently March on Wall Street & Occupy The Stock Exchange until Capitalism FALLS. Focused Collective Consciousness & Action can make this dream REALITY!!!

 

Obviously we don't think a single mass march on The Stock Exchange will in & of itself bring down the nefarious capitalist system. Rather it will be the culmination of a united series of actions aimed against the Oligarchy by workers, students & other broad sectors of the population who have nothing to gain under capitalism. Workers & Families: OCCUPY THE UNIONS! DOWN WITH THE BUREAUCRATS! FOR GLOBAL SOCIAL REVOLUTION!

In Defense of Leon Trotsky now available as eBook

 

We are pleased to announce the launch of an eBook version of In Defense of Leon Trotsky by David North, chairman of the international editorial board of the World Socialist Web Site.

 

In Defense of Leon Trotsky can now be purchased online at Mehring.com in epub and pdf format. The book can also be purchased for Kindle download at Amazon.com.

 

This book is vital reading. It raises important issues of scholarship about several biographies of Leon Trotsky, co-leader of the Russian Revolution and implacable opponent of Stalin. In particular, North critiques the recently published biography of Trotsky by British historian Robert Service. He demonstrates that Service's work fails to meet basic standards of historical research, drawing heavily on old Stalinist slanders against Trotsky. In the process, North presents a compelling portrait of Trotsky, and provides new insight into his ideas and immense historical significance.

 

The publication of North's book has initiated an international controversy over Service's biography. Fourteen prominent European historians wrote an open letter in which they opposed the planned publication of Service's book in German, and the publishing house Suhrkamp has been forced to delay putting it out.

 

Last summer the prestigious academic journal The American Historical Review published a joint review of In Defense of Leon Trotsky and Service's biography. The reviewer, historian Bertrand Patenaude, wrote, "A careful examination of North's book shows his criticism of Service to be exactly what Trotsky scholar Baruch Knei-Paz, in a blurb on the back cover, says it is: 'detailed, meticulous, well-argued and devastating.'"

 

The paperback version of North's book

can be ordered from Mehring Books here
