Service on Trotsky

Robert Service has a new biography out. This time he takes on left-wing icon Leon Trotsky. Service exposes the deep malignancy of the man, his actions, and his ideas -- something that Western intellectuals in their enthusiasm for all things left have, for the most part, chosen to ignore. Check out John Gray's review here. Buy the book here.
