This is an unique work. Nadezhda Joffe is the daughter of Adolf Abramovich Joffe, the Bolshevik leader & Left Oppositionist who committed suicide in 1927 to protest the expulsion of Leon Trotsky from the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. She is one of the few Left Oppositionists to survive the 1930s. Joffe's memories of her father, Trotsky, Lenin, Mehring, Rakovsky & Lunacharsky & her reminiscences of political & cultural life in Moscow in the early 1920s are extraordinary. The bulk of the book is a nightmarish & moving account of her fate at the hands of a Stalinist bureaucracy, which first had her arrested & deported for several years as an Oppositionist in 1929. A more brutal period begins with her second arrest & deportation to Siberia in 1936. Here Left Oppositionists, intellectuals, workers & peasants died by the hundreds of thousands in conditions of back-breaking labor & deprivation. Joffe describes the fate of the socialist opponents of Stalin's counterrevolution. Her introduction explains that she considers this book her "duty to those who were with me in the prison cells & on the double bunks." After two decades in exile, she was able to return to Moscow in 1956. To order contact: Labor Publications Inc., P.O. Box 48377, Oak Park, MI 48237; FAX 810-967-3023.
