Trotsky, Leon (Lev Davidovich Bronstein)
(1879-1940)
A Bolshevik revolutionary leader, Foreign Minister, and Commissar of War after the 1917 Revolution, who was ousted by Stalin in 1927, exiled in 1929, and murdered in Mexico in 1940. In 1938 he founded the Fourth International in order to oppose Stalin. He is mainly remembered as the theorist of ‘permanent revolution’, and of the USSR as a ‘degenerated workers' state’, in which the bureaucracy functioned as a new ruling class (see élite ).
