About this Item

Octavo. 119, [1]pp. Uncut. Original printed wrappers with red and black lettering on front cover. Publisher's logo on title page. This work was written in 1918 at Brest-Litvosk during the negotiations between the new Soviet government lead by Lenin and Trotsky and the Kaiser's army while the Russian front was falling apart with Russian soldiers evacuating the front in the face of a German onslaught. In order to save the situation and prevent the collapse of the Revolution, Leon Trotsky, Soviet Commissar of Foreign Affairs, was dispatched to the front to start these negotiations on behalf of the new revolutionary government. The Soviet government was under attack not just by German imperialism but by those on the left, who attacked even the very idea of negotiations with imperialists. This left wing opposition was manifested also inside the Communist movement in Germany as well. Confusion reigned on both sides of the front. This booklet was written and addressed, in large part, to these German workers and soldiers who were confused by the Bolshevik and Soviet negotiations with representatives of their own ruling class. The Comintern later translated and distributed this book throughout the world. Despite this, very few copies have survived the Stalinist purges of the Communist Party in the 1930s. This copy is the first Swiss edition published the same year than the German one (1918). Wrappers creased, age-toned, and partly chipped along edges. Corners bumped, thus slightly affecting pages throughout. Tip of upper and lower corners of very first pages creased throughout. Moderate age-toning along paper margin. Text in German. Wrappers in overall fair, interior in fair to good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 33679
