The second of three volumes recording the central political battle in the Soviet Union following the death of Bolshevik leader V.I. Lenin in 1924.

This volume covers the period of the United Opposition bloc of Trotsky with Gregory Zinoviev and Lev Kemenev. It takes up the debate over 'socialism in one country' vs organising to extend the world revolution; the battle to maintain the worker-peasant alliance; the threat of a new war against the Soviet Union by the imperialist powers; the growing use of slander, falsification, and violence by Stalin's backers to intimidate and silence the working-class vanguard; and much more.
