Balazs Nagy Papers

Wed, 2018-08-08 15:26

The papers of Balazs Nagy (c1927-2015) illustrate the international nature of Trotskyism. Nagy took the pseudonym Michel Varga for some of his writings. His papers, which are held at Senate House Library, University of London, have just been catalogued online. Most of Nagy’s life was spent as an exile in France. Unsurprisingly his archives reveal much about contemporary French Trotskyism but there is a great deal of material on Trotskyism in the UK from the mid-1970s onwards.
