This is a single volume collection of just some of the writings of the great socialist politcal thinker and revolutionary Rosa Luxemburg.
Born in rural Poland and spending most her early life in Warsaw, Rosa gravitated toward Berlin as an adult and became a prime leader of the German Social-Democratic Party. Following 1898, Edward Bernstein led the German party and most of European socialism into the reformist revisionist position which came to embody the legacy of the 2nd Socialist International. From the very beginning, Rosa identified herself with the left opposition to this reformist position of Bernstein.
Although this book does not contain her important early (1900) book, "Reform or Revolution," the volume does contain enough of her other newspaper articles from the period of time from 1898 until the time of her murder by German police in 1919, that the reader is able to obtain a very clear picture of her philosophy and life.
