"Max Shachtman, together with James P. Cannon and Martin Abern, was a founder of the American Trotskyist movement and the leading theorist in defining Soviet society as a new exploitive system of bureaucratic collectivism. For fifty years he was at the center of international social and political controversies and made significant contributions to the movements of the non-Communist Left, as a tireless agitator, an informed and formidable debater, a pamphleteer, and a brilliant and witty polemicist." *Johnpoll p. 354-5.
