Revolutionary Marxism in Spain, 1930-1937 examines the impact of Trotsky's political thought upon those Spanish communists who dissented from the 'general line' laid down by Moscow. Using Spanish sources it sets out the position of the POUM and engages with scholarly debates around its role in the Spanish Popular Front, Civil War and Revolution
