[Xmca-l] Re: Help? Vygotsky train ride



Greg--

I just realized that Vygotsky's trip to London was in June 1925, but
the General Strike was not until May 1926.  But Vygotsky was
travelling to London during the anti-communist hysteria generated
around the Daily Mail's forged "Zinoviev Letter". Maybe that's why
they didn't want him to present his paper. It does include some pretty
rousing revolutionary stuff!
