ABOUT THE BOOK:
Alexandra Kollontai was a key leader of the Russian Socialist movement and her writings on women’s liberation and Marxism have been essential reading for generations of activists. This book is a collection of newly translated writings by Kollontai from her time in exile in Germany and her years leading the Women’s Bureau in post-revolutionary Russia.
Kollontai worked tirelessly all her life as an organizer and wrote dynamically about her experiences and how they shaped the debates on women’s emancipation. These writings illustrate the political arc of woman who dedicated her life to the struggle for a better world and shares her work with an emerging generation of fighters for women’s liberation.
Praise for Alexandra Kollontai: A Biography by Cathy Porter
“Alexandra Kollontai has the potential to be a true delight for the connoisseur by providing an alternative historical account of Russia and the socialist movement. However, what makes it transcend time is Kollontai’s chief belief that women should be at the centre of the economy, not the periphery” Spokeman
