It was called the "French Turn" because it was first formulated in 1931 while Trotsky was in Paris.

Its original name was the Intercollegiate Socialist Society, and its stated purpose was that of "educating Americans about the need to extend democracy to every aspect of our society." Under its former name, the League focused its efforts on proselytizing to college students about the labor movement, socialism, and industrial democracy; in 1921, it assumed its new name and enlarged its scope to society at large. The Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) grew out of its youth section, the Student League for Industrial Democracy (SLID). ...more on Wikipedia about "League for Industrial Democracy"

In the People's Republic of China, neoconservatism is a movement which first arose in the early 1990s and argues that social progress is best accomplished through gradual reform of society, eschewing revolution and sudden overthrow of the governmental system. This movement is based heavily on the ideas of Edmund Burke and has been described in the West by the scholar Joseph Fewsmith. Other than the name, the movement has no connection with neoconservatism in the United States, though, from the standpoint of philosophy, it can be identified as a form of conservative thought. ...more on Wikipedia about "Neoconservatism (China)"

Neoconservatism in Japan, also known as the neo-defense school, is a term used by Asian media only recently to refer to a hawkish new generation of Japanese conservatives. They are distinguished from older Japanese conservatives in that they take a more "active" view of the JSDF and are known for making what would be considered in the West politically incorrect statements. ( Shintaro Ishihara is particularly infamous for this.) Despite this, they enjoy fair popularity across the nation, especially with the middle-aged population. The term is used in South Korea and China, as well as in Japan, both descriptively and as a way to tar the faction by association with United States neoconservatives. ...more on Wikipedia about "Neoconservatism in Japan"
Shachtmanism is a critical term applied to the form of Marxism associated with Max Shachtman. It has two major components: a bureaucratic collectivist analysis of the Soviet Union and a third camp approach to world politics. Shachtmanites believe that the Stalinist rulers of Communist countries are a new (ruling) class, distinct from the workers and rejects Trotsky's description of Stalinist Russia as being a " degenerated workers' state". Max Shachtman described the USSR as a " bureaucratic collectivist" society. Although Shachtmanism is usually described as a form of Trotskyism, both Trotsky and Shachtman were careful to not describe Shachtman's view as Trotskyist. ...more on Wikipedia about "Shachtmanism"
Social Democrats USA (SDUSA), a successor to the Socialist Party of America, is a small coalition of intellectuals and trade unionists.

This may not be as idiosyncratic as it might seem however - under Tony Blair, with the domination of his Labour Party in concert with the former ruling parties of the Soviet bloc over the International, it has come to generally favor the international policies of the United States under George W. Bush. ...more on Wikipedia about "Social Democrats USA"
