Rogovin was a sociologist at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow who sadly passed away in 1998. He wrote the series of books in the 1990s after the Soviet archives had opened up and this enabled him to write an accurate picture of the various oppositional trends in the CPSU. His reseach vindicates the Trotskyist opposiiton to Stalin and exposes the fraudulent nature of the Moscow Trials.
