PRAISE FOR ‘THE PERMANENT REVOLUTION’
I’m very much of Trotsky’s line – the permanent revolution. – Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela
Trotsky’s writings on the permanent revolution are the theoretical mainspring of proletarian revolutionary strategy and are an obligatory study for all who aspire to lead the working-class in the struggle for socialism, whether in the capitalist countries of the West or in the backward colonial countries. – Li Fu-jen, co-founder, Communist League of China
The whole essence of Trotsky’s theory of the permanent revolution lies in the idea that the colonial bourgeoisie and the bourgeoisie of the backward countries are incapable of carrying out the tasks of the bourgeois democratic revolution. – Ted Grant, editor, Militant
