Interesting collection of essays written in early 1950s, some dated but some still relevant.

A collection of essays by Isaac Deutscher, a Marxist historian of the Soviet Union and Communism. This has two of his classics, "The Ex-Communist's Conscience," and "'1984' -- The Mysticism of Cruelty," though I have found them in other books of his as well.

He is best known as a biographer of Leon Trotsky and Joseph Stalin and as a commentator on Soviet affairs. His three-volume biography of Trotsky, in particular, was highly influential among the British New Left.
