Book summary

Originally published in 1940, this is an exhaustive biography of the famous socialist philosopher and revolutionary. "The following book represents the first serious attempt to give a full length biography of the most remarkable woman the international socialist movement has ever produced, and at the same time an account of her ideas and an indication of her permanent contribution to socialist thought." Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include : Youth The Fate of Poland In Defence of Marxism The Problem of Political Power Full Dress Rehearsal Rosa Luxemberg In Action A New Weapon Capitalism Inevitably Doomed? The Struggle Against Imperialism The Consuming Flame The World War The Russian Revolution The German Revolution The Lamp Lies Shattered [via]
