The title of this book is misleading for new readers — the "terrorism" it refers to is not the individual terrorism or terror attacks of small groups that the word conjures up today (though the prolific Trotsky wrote elsewhere about the problems of individual terrorism). It refers to state terror — which the Bolsheviks were using to wage civil war against opponents of the revolution both inside and outside Russia.
Trotsky attacks Kautsky's abstract moral notions of the "sanctity of human life" and points out that the rule of one class over another is always based on repression. Writing at the same time as he built and led the Red Army to defend the revolution, Trotsky explains why the use of force is necessary for the very survival of the revolution — faced with over a dozen invading armies and internal opposition from the old ruling class.
