About the Author: Isaac Deutscher

Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Prophet Outcast book, this is one of the most wanted Isaac Deutscher author readers around the world.


The Prophet Outcast Few political figures of the twentieth century have aroused as much controversy as the Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky Trotsky s extraordinary life and extensive writings have left an indelible mark on revolutionary conscience, yet there was a danger that his name would disappear from history Originally published in 1954, Deutscher s magisterial three volume biography was the first major publication to counter the powerful Stalinist propaganda machine In this definitive biography Trotsky emerges in his real stature, as the most heroic, and ultimately tragic, character of the Russian Revolution.This third volume of the trilogy, first published in 1963, is a self contained narrative of Trotsky s years in exile and of his murder in Mexico in 1940 Deutscher s masterful account of the period, and of the ideological controversies ranging throughout it, forms a background against which, as he says, the protagonist s character reveals itself, while he is moving towards catastrophe.

    So far, it s just about as astounding as the first two Trotsky warns Europe about the Nazis, founds the fourth international Although here comes the first major disagreement I have with Mr Deutscher He didn t seem to think Trotsky should have attempted to found the fourth international It s true that the fourth international did not rise out of the same type of favorable circumanstances that the first three came out of Nonetheless, it did preserve a revolutionary tradition now isn t tha So far, it s just about as astounding as the first two Trotsky warns Europe about the Nazis, founds the fourth international Although here comes the first major disagreement I have with Mr Deutscher He didn t seem to think Trotsky should have attempted to found the fourth international It s true that the fourth international did not rise out of the same type of favorable circumanstances that the first three came out of Nonetheless, it did pres...

    After some searching, I ve actually been able to find the actual covers of the edition of Isaac Deutscher s three volume biography of Leon Trotsky I read in high school These, his history of the Russian revolution and a collection of his literary essays led me, by age sixteen, to assert in some companies that I was a Trotskyist.Now that seems naive I really didn t know much of what I was talking about and what I did know was all written from a sympathetic perspective.Trotsky had the advantage After some searching, I ve actually been able to find the actual covers of the edition of Isaac Deutscher s three volume biography of Leon Trotsky I read in high school These, his history of the Russian revolution and a collection of his literary essays led me, by age sixteen, to assert in some companies that I was a Trotskyist.Now that seems naive I really didn t know much of what I was talking about and what I did know was all written from a sympathetic perspective.Trotsky had the advantage of being exiled before the revolution entirely revolved, revealing a dark underbelly of repression and coercion Deutscher, definitely a sympathizer who would claim that things would have been much better had Lenin not had his strokes and had Trots...

    This was Deutcher s last volume of his Trotsky trilogy Although this is the volume where his soft position towards the Stalinist Beuracracy comes to the fore his call for political reform as opposed to the Trotskyist call for political Revolution in the degenerated deformed worker s states , It is, in my opinion the most interest of the three volumes Deutcher writes of the last period of Trotsky s life with incredible verve He shows Trotsky, faced with exile, persecution and even death fought This was Deutcher s last volume of his Trotsky trilogy Although this is the volume where his soft position towards the Stalinist Beuracracy comes to the fore his call for political reform as opposed to the Trotskyist call for political Revolution in the degenerated deformed worker s states , It is, in my opinion the most interest of the three volumes...

    AWESOME BOOK AND AWESOME TRILOGY I am amazed at the research and writing style of Deutscher which is only surpassed by Trotsky himself Trotsky s insight and predictions as to what would happen in terms of Germany and Stalinism were right on Just as feudalism was followed not by Equality, Liberty, Fraternity, but by capitalism, so capitalism was being followed not by socialism but by bureaucratic collectivism Trotsky argued the USSR was still a workers state for there was no individual pro AWESOME BOOK AND AWESOME TRILOGY I am a...
