"Humor at its best is a somewhat fluid and transitory element, but most books about it are illustrated with hardened old jokes from the comic papers, or classic witticisms jerked out of their context. Max Eastman, in this work, avoids this catastrophe by quoting mainly from contemporary American humor. This is not an anthology in that selections have been made with a view to making a point rather than covering the field.The purpose of Eastman's fabled work is to make the reader laugh. Since his early school days, it has seemed to him that textbooks are wrongly written in that they are conducted in a way which ignores the natural operation of the mind. As a result, the opinion is universal, and under the circumstances a fact, that in order to learn anything you have to study. Since this introduction to humor is itself near to writing a textbook, Eastman uses the very text he constructs to illustrate the manner in which textbooks should be written.Examination and classification of the kinds of humorous experience upon the basis of a theory is a science. As such, this work offers a fair chance to illustrate a method of instruction. However, the distinction between a good joke and a bad one will not prevent the reader from making bad jokes nor enable one to make good ones. There is an artistic and playful element that simply cannot be taught. Enjoyment of Laughter presents a total view of the science of laughter and draws upon some of the great American humorists to do so."--Provided by publisher

This early work by Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains his analysis of Socialism, the Soviet State and Economics of Russia during the early twentieth century. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for anyone with an interest in Russian history and the politics of Trotsky. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce.

Un point de vue "trotskiste" sur la querelle entre Stalin et Trotsky. NB : en fin de volume, figurent deux suppléments qui sont deux rapports dus à Stalin sur la faction adverse soumis au PCUS en 1926 et 1927, ceci par crainte de l'éditeur de voir le lecteur mal informé! Suivent également deux lettres (une de l'éditeur, une du traducteur) au sujet de ces suppléments!
