      National Socialism (German: Nationalsozialismus), more commonly known as Nazism (/ ˈ n ɑː t s i ɪ z əm, ˈ n æ t-/), is the ideology and practices associated with the Nazi Party—officially the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP)—in Nazi Germany, and of other far-right groups with similar ideas and aims.   LET'S BEGIN with a few classics from Trotsky. His account of a defeated uprising 12 years before in the book drives home the point that the revolution in Russia didn't sneak up on anyone.   Witness to the German Revolution is a fascinating account of a fateful moment in time. But a socialist reading it now would do well to study Leon Trotsky's short, incisive work "Lessons of October.
