Ever since, for a period of something like six decades, he has been a central figure in the Trotskyist movement. It has been suggested that, even at this late date, the British Party leaders had seen only a summary of Trotsky’s book and indeed this was what was published with The Errors of Trotskyism.

Contemporary Trotskyism looks in detail at the influence, resilience and weaknesses of the British Trotskyist movement, from the s to the present day. The book argues that to understand and explain the development, resilience and influence of Trotskyist groups, we need to analyse them as bodies that comprise elements of three types of.

John Kelly’s book addresses a significant gap in the literature; there hasn’t been a book surveying contemporary British Trotskyism for decades.
