The Harvard Trotsky Archive was opened to researchers in 1980. In
it, researchers found evidence that Leon Trotsky deliberately lied
many times and about many people and events. Other evidence of
Trotsky's lies comes from his own writings and in documents from
former Soviet archives.
Trotsky's Lies, The Moscow
Trials As Evidence,
The Dewey Commission.
Trotsky's Conspiracies of the 1930s,
Drawing upon primary sources from the Harvard Trotsky Archive and
from former Soviet archives Grover Furr subjects the testimony of
Moscow Trials defendants to a source-critical check and
verification. His conclusion: their testimony is genuine, reflecting
what the defendants chose to say.
The same primary sources, plus Trotsky's own writings, demonstrate
that Trotsky lied about virtually everything concerning the Soviet
Union in his writings about the three Moscow Trials of 1936, 1937
and 1938, his writings on the assassination of Sergei Kirov, and in
his testimony to the Dewey Commission in 1937.
This book will revolutionize the understanding of the Moscow Trials.
Trotsky’s writings and activities during the 1930s must be seen in
an entirely new light.
The results of this research reveal much about Trotsky’s
conspiracies in the 1930s.
"Grover Furr is at the cutting edge of contemporary historical
research on the Soviet Union. He is staunchly dedicated to
correcting the revisionist history on the Soviet Union. His
work on the early-Soviet era is the most meticulous research
masterfully draws on a detailed reading and analysis of the most
authoritative archival sources available in Russia, Europe, and
North America. His findings uniquely contradict the potted western
academic narrative and form a crucial contribution to understanding
the complex history of the early-Soviet era and are essential
reading for scholars and students of 20th century European history."
Reviews and Comments on Grover Furr's Previous Book,
- Immanuel Ness, Professor of Political Science, Brooklyn
College, The City University of New York
"Blood Lies is an almost line-by-line
demolition/refutation of a mass-market-popular book on Stalin and
the Soviet Union. The refutations are joined with replacing the
lies, distortions and errors (with the 'errors' inescapably of
sheer, wanton negligence, since they are so repeated) with what
actually happened as documented reliably in the scholarship of
others. The author, Grover Furr, beginning most prominently with an
earlier book Khrushchev Lied, refuting the litany of lies
told by Nikita Khrushchev in his ‘secret speech,’ decided enough was
enough and has embarked on a second career beside being an
accomplished medieval historian of systematically repudiating the
vast cannon of accepted Anglo/US historical narrative of the USSR.
What is interesting is how thoroughly dishonest the book that is
being refuted is."

Against the Working Class (2015)
"No creed is more obligatory than the 'anti-Stalin
paradigm,' analyzed by Grover Furr, a rare scholar to risk vicious
opprobrium for challenging allegations of Stalin's crimes, which
serve as the main obstacle to belief in socialism. One approaches
with expectation this follow-up to his critique of its
quintessential expression in Timothy Snyder’s Bloodlands:
Europe Between Hitler and Stalin, where Stalin is
Hitler's evil twin and his USSR Nazi Germany’s close cousin despite
their claim to be polar opposites, embattled in the war in
which the USSR defeated fascism. In Blood Lies, Furr
employs new archival material to expose the typical errors and
dishonesty of charges against Stalin."
