    Soon after the Bolshevik victory in the Russian Revolution, Leon Trotsky led the Red Army against the counter-revolutionary White armies. Written in the white heat of the Civil War, "Terrorism and Communism" is one of the most potent defences of revolutionary dictatorship of the twentieth century. In his provocative commentary in this new edition, the coruscating critic Slavoj Zizek argues that Trotsky's attack on the illusions of democracy has a vital relevance to today.

    Story

    My issue was more with the content than the quality of the audiobook itself. I had no major issues with the narrator but the text itself felt like a rationalization for Soviet authoritarianism. Trotsky argues with the "militarization of labor" and for the subordination of labor unions to the Soviet state.
