International Committee of the Fourth International, 1992
Fourth International Journal: The End of the USSR

This is the 1992 edition of Fourth International, at that time the annual theoretical journal produced by the International Committee of the Fourth International (ICFI).

The first major section of the volume is devoted to the documents of the World Conference of Workers against Imperialist War and Colonialism which was held by the International Committee in Berlin on November 16-17, 1991. The conference provided an assessment of the political situation in the aftermath of the war in Iraq, as well as the crisis in the Soviet Union, where the Stalinist bureaucracy was carrying out the dissolution of the gains of the 1917 October Revolution and restore capitalism.

The conference also drew a political balance sheet of the protracted struggle waged by the Trotskyist movement against the Soviet bureaucracy and against the apologists for Stalinism in the Pabloite opportunist international led by Ernest Mandel.
