[Classics] In Defence Of Marxism

A Letter to James P. Cannon[1]

9 January, 1940

Dear Friend,

Yesterday I sent the Russian text of my new article written in the form of a letter to Burnham. Not all comrades possibly are content with the fact that I give the predominant place in the discussion to the matter of dialectics. But I am sure it is now the only way to begin the theoretical education of the party, especially of the youth, and to inject a reversion to empiricism and eclectics.

W. Rork [Leon Trotsky]
