Marx once wrote that “history weighs like a nightmare on the brains of the living.” Even twenty years after the Soviet Union’s collapse, activists are still confronted by the legacy of Stalinism. This volume aims to deepen our understanding of the origins, impacts, and enduring prominence of Stalinism and to help exercise these ghosts of the past.
Featuring essays by Leon Trotsky, Ernest Mandel, Michael Löwy, Isaac Deutscher, Perry Anderson, Marcel Liebman, Daniel Singer, and many others critical of Stalin’s legacy from a revolutionary perspective.
Tariq Ali is a writer and filmmaker. He has written more that two dozen books on world history and politics, seven novels (translated into over a dozen languages), and scripts for the stage and screen. He is an editor of New Left Review and lives in London.
