Can the trade unions, under the changing conditions of monopoly capitalism, defend the interests of the workers against the employers and their government? Can unions dominated by conservative bureaucrats - or even gangsters - be turned into organisations controlled by their members? Can the unions move beyond advocating minor reforms and become part of a revolutionary reorganisation of society? 

Leon Trotsky answered with a resounding 'yes'. This book presents the conclusions he reached during his long years of activity in the revolutionary workers' movement - on such questions as the role of a Marxist party in the unions, the dangers of opportunism and sectarianism, the need for unity and political independence in the labour movement, and the different roles that unions, factory committees, and workers' councils can play in a revolution.
