Leon Trotsky (bronze bust)

Bio-bibliographical sketches of selected Trotskyists

— Survey —

Within the framework of TrotskyanaNet, we provide biographical sketches (or, short notices) and bibliographical notes (selective bibliographies) about people who were (or are) more or less 'renowned' Trotskyists — either for all their adult life or for a certain span of their life only. The fact whether or not a person is bio-bibliographically featured here, has neither to do with his/her degree of importance with regard to the history of the Trotskyist movement nor with the person's scholarly, ideological, political or historical relevance in general. With one single exception, only persons already deceased are featured.
Furthermore, we like to refer to our introductory remarks to the Trotskyists' Name Authority Files. Bio-bibliographical information about some 180 deceased Trotskyists is also to be found in Chapter 9 of our Leon Trotsky Bibliography.

The scope of our bio-bibliographical miscellanies are varying considerably; most of them are provided as PDF files; longer sketches are, as a rule, divided into three or four parts:
