The Rosa Luxemburg Reader

The Rosa Luxemburg Reader is the definitive one-volume collection of Luxemburg's writings in English translation.

The Rosa Luxemburg Reader

Among the major Marxist thinkers of the Russian Revolution era, Rosa Luxemburg stands out as one who speaks to our own time. Her legacy grows in relevance as the global character of the capitalist market becomes more apparent and the critique of bureaucratic power is more widely accepted within the movement for human liberation. The Rosa Luxemburg Reader is the definitive one-volume collection of Luxemburg's writings in English translation. Unlike previous publications of her work from the early 1970s, this volume includes substantial extracts from her major economic writings—above all, The Accumulation of Capital (1913)—and from her political writings, including Reform or Revolution (1898), the Junius Pamphlet (1916), and The Russian Revolution (1918). The Reader also includes a number of important texts that have never before been published in English translation, including substantial extracts from her Introduction to Political Economy (1916), and a recently-discovered piece on slavery. With a substantial introduction assessing Luxemburg's work in the light of recent research, The Rosa Luxemburg Reader is an indispensable resource for scholarship and an inspiration for a new generation of activists.

Red Rosa

A graphic novel of the dramatic life and death of German revolutionary Rosa Luxemburg A giant of the political left, Rosa Luxemburg is one of the foremost minds in the canon of revolutionary socialist thought. But she was much more than just a thinker. She made herself heard in a world inimical to the voices of strong-willed women. She overcame physical infirmity and the prejudice she faced as a Jew to become an active revolutionary whose philosophy enriched every corner of an incredibly productive and creative life—her many friendships, her sexual intimacies, and her love of science, nature and art. Always opposed to the First World War, when others on the German left were swept up on a tide of nationalism, she was imprisoned and murdered in 1919 fighting for a revolution she knew to be doomed. In this beautifully drawn work of graphic biography, writer and artist Kate Evans has opened up her subject’s intellectual world to a new audience, grounding Luxemburg’s ideas in the realities of an inspirational and deeply affecting life.

Rosa Luxemburg

Rosa Luxemburg holds an enduring fascination as a radical socialist committed to democratic values, and a woman whose charismatic personality and impassioned speeches inspired her followerswithout resort to bureaucratic organisation. Her assistant and friend Mathilde Jacob was Rosa Luxemburg's mainstay during her years of imprisonment in the First World War. 'My dearest Mathilde' provided material and emotional support, organised Rosa Luxemburg's clandestine communication with the outside world, and herself played a key role in the illegal work of the Spartacus group. When revolution broke out in Germany in 1918, she sought unsuccessfully to protect Rosa Luxemburg in the tragic events that led to her death. Mathilde Jacob's memoir, written as testimony of 'love for a person and for a cause', and sent abroad for safe-keeping when she fell victim to the Nazis, was unknown to Rosa Luxemburg's early biographers and has only recently been published in Germany. It paints a vivid portrait both of Rosa Luxemburg herself, and of the group of friends - Karl Liebknecht, Leo Jogiches, Clara Zetkin and Paul Levi - that with her made up the Spartacus leadership. This translation is by Hans Fernbach, who knew Mathilde Jacob as a family friend in Berlin; it is introduced by David Fernbach, whose publications include, as editor, the Pelican edition of Karl Marx's Political Writings.

Rosa Luxemburg

Focuses on the personal life of Rosa Luxemburg (1870-1919), the Jewish socialist revolutionary. Describes her background in Poland and experience of discrimination against Jews. Mentions her attitude to antisemitism, especially in 1910 when she was attacked by radical nationalist circles in Warsaw who claimed that her Social Democratic Party was run by Jews alien to Polish national feeling (p. 179-181). Luxemburg denied that Jewish suffering had any special significance and claimed that the role of scapegoat was shared by other minorities. In 1918, her major role in the founding of the German Communist Party and the Spartacist uprising also led to antisemitic attacks. She was murdered at the instigation of the military in January 1919.
