Spain in the 1930s was the last great cauldron of revolution and counterrevolution before the onslaught of World War II. In response to the growing social crisis, and faced with an attack by the forces of international fascism, the Spanish workers and peasants began to seize the factories and the land. But they were led by an uneasy and ill-fated coalition of bourgeois liberals, Stalinists, Anarchists and Socialists, more afraid of the plebeian revolt than of the fascist menace. The confrontation that resulted was focused around issues that are still debated today. 

Here, for the first time in a single volume, are the day-to-day political assessments of the Spanish revolution and civil war by the great Russian revolutionist Leon Trotsky. Nearly half of the material has never before appeared in English.
