display_description Historian Patenaude, a lecturer at Stanford, concentrates on the period from 1937, when Trotsky arrived in Mexico, to his assassination in 1940, painting a vivid portrait of Lenin's former right-hand man: his stormy relations with his flamboyant Mexican champion (and later enemy), artist Diego Rivera; his dealings with his American supporters; and the relentless efforts of Stalin's GPU to kill him.
