ABOUT THE BOOK:

Rosa Luxemburg, brilliant early twentieth-century German revolutionary, comes alive in a rich set of essays on her life, ideas, and lasting influence. Le Blanc’s essays deal not only with her remarkable contributions to political, social, and economic theory, but also touch on her vibrant personality and intimate friendships. This collection simultaneously showcases her penetratingly intellectual, political, and deeply humanistic qualities.

 

PRAISE FOR THE AUTHOR:

Praise for Lenin and the Revolutionary Party

“A work of unusual strength and coherence, inspired not by academic neutrality but by the deep conviction that there is much to learn from the actual ideas and experiences of Lenin and the revolutionary party he led.”

Michael Löwy 

Praise for Revolution, Democracy, Socialism

“We desperately need the resurrection and revival of the kind of strategic thinking and principled commitment that Lenin epitomized in the era of 1917, and all that it promised. For those interested in this rebirth of the politics of alternative to capitalism, Paul Le Blanc’s account of the democratic, socialist, and revolutionary Lenin will prove indispensable. Reading it is a reminder that what is, need not be, and that what has, seemingly, failed, can be reconstituted anew.”

Bryan Palmer 

Praise for Marx, Lenin and the Revolutionary Experience

“Looking back at the tumultuous events associated with revolutionary Marxism in the past century, Paul Le Blanc offers us an insightful, sympathetic, and even-handed assessment of the sources of its dynamism as well as the causes of its decline.”

Walden Bello
