In 1985, after a protracted process of degeneration, the Workers Revolutionary Party, the British section of the ICFI, broke decisively from Trotskyism. This publication, the companion volume to "How the Workers Revolutionary Party Betrayed Trotskyism 1973-1985," presents the key documents of the split as it unfolded from 1982 to 1986. These documents provide a clear record of the struggle waged by the International Committee to defend the fundamental principles and program of the Trotskyist movement.
