For Engels, I'd say _Anti-Duhring_ just because I love it so much.  With 
Trotsky it's harder.  I'd say _Revolution Betrayed_ is the most 
fundamental.  _My Life_ is the most delightful.  _History of the Russian 
Revolution_ has the best quotable lines.  And _Literature and Revolution_ 
is the most appropriate for this group.
