The third and lastvlume in a series on the development of the Left Opposition in the Soviet Communist Party in the twenties, documented through the writings of its major spokesman, Leon Trotsky.

This volume, written mostly in exile in Central Asia, records his call for critical support to Stalin's "left course"; his positions on the Sixth Comintern Congress, the growing danger of Thermidor, a new challenge to the theory of permanent revolution, the split between Stalin and Bukharin, and the possibility of a bloc with the Bukharinist right wing to restore party democracy; his approach to the "conciliators" and "intransigents" in the Opposition itself; and many other issues that arose in the fourteen months covered by this volume.
