Lessons of October 4-week Discussion Series

Lessons of October by Leon Trotsky, a leader of the Russian Revolution

What makes a modern revolution successful? This four-week study group will explore the short book Lessons of October, a first-hand account of the 1917 Russian Revolution as it unfolded.

One hundred years later his work is a valuable resource for activists who want to understand the dynamics of today's "pop-up movements" and upsurges like the Arab Spring.

Trosky asserts that creating fundamental changes requires a working-class party -- and one that is not doctrinaire but is able to gauge and respond to swifly changing conditions.

A link to The Lessons of October online is available here. View the study guide here.
