An interesting volume, written in 1924, regarding the problems of changing the outlook of Russians, in their everyday lives, according to the then-optimistic/hopeful tenets of the Russian Revolution.

At the time, Russia was in the process of transformation from a rural society of mostly illiterate peasants to an industrial giant, which would require a more educated and socialized workforce. In less than 20 years from the year this volume was written, Russia had successfully transformed itself in

Noto in Italia come "Rivoluzione e vita quotidiana" (di libera distribuzione).
Il libro non è altro che una raccolta degli articoli pubblicati da Trotsky sul 'Pravda' nel periodo, c.d., di "transizione".(parliamo del 1923)
Le nota dote da scrittore e da oratore (Gli articoli erano stati elaborati da Trotsky a seguito di discussioni avvenute in riunioni con propagandisti a Mosca) di Trosky è davvero eccezionale, rendendo di facile e deliziosa fruizione concetti socio-politici all'apparenza tediosi

A fantastic collection of essays by Russian revolutionary, Leon Trotsky, on a variety of topics; all coming under the umbrella of how a society can be built after a worker's revolution in a peasant economy; and in doing so, how people must change and will be changed by it. The range is wide, from education to manners, including how spitting and swearing will fade out! As a former librarian, I especially, like the chapter on the role of librarians; describing them as "cultural warriors".

I read this book all the time- from cover to cover or just dipping in from time to time. I have also reviewd it in part and in full many times. Basically- it shows what so many would-be revolutionaries neglect (i'm looking at you, Che)- that it is essential to rebuild society after a revolution- the seizing of power is far from enough. He covers everything from spitting to swearing and politeness- ever with this is mind: The Working Class is an intelligent class, more capable of thought, reflect ...more
