Marx & Philosophy Review of Books Reviews
The first of three volumes of the Complete Works covering Luxemburg’s life and work . Spanning from 1897 to 1905, it contains speeches, articles, and essays on the strikes, protests, and political debates culminating in the 1905 Russian Revolution.
In left history, the two poles of “reform” and “revolution” are often counterpoised, and for good reason. In the book under review, the author tries to square the circle. The reviewer critically but comradely weighs the author’s successes.
