Book excerpt/synopsis : A classic book on the legacy of Rosa Luxemburg’s work with essays of political analysis by leading scholars he inspirational power of Rosa Luxemburg (1871–1919) remains as important today as it was in her lifetime. An uncompromising, original thinker and revolutionary activist, Luxemburg’s efforts to develop an emancipatory version of Marxism through her involvement with Polish, Russian and German Social Democratic parties and then the Spartacist League ensured her position as an influential force, yet resulted in her brutal murder during the January 1919 uprising in Berlin. J. P. Nettl’s biography was first published half a century ago and remains the most detailed and comprehensive study of Rosa Luxemburg to date. His extensive knowledge of the social and political context of the European socialist movements in which she was active, and his engagement with her voluminous writings in German, Polish, and Russian (many of which are only now being translated into English), brings to light the multidimensional nature of her life and work. This new edition will enable a new generation to explore Luxemburg’s political and activist work, as well as grasp the unique personality of this remarkable woman, theoretician and revolutionary.

Download PDF or read online Rosa Luxemburg Book by Michael Brie and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2021-03-06 with total page 253 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : This book analyses the development of Rosa Luxemburg (1871–1919) as an outstanding Marxist thinker and socialist politician in the era of imperialism and revolution. Identifying the driving force behind Luxemburg’s development as the deep unity between her passionate, emphatic life and her political and theoretical work, the authors retrace the inner dynamics of its different stages while highlighting the deep rupture caused by the experience of the Russian Revolution. On the basis of new publications of her Polish works and other writings, Luxemburg's strategic approaches are located in an Eastern European context. The authors discuss Luxemburg’s unique analyses of the first experiments in socialist participation in government, of the first Russian revolution and of the forms of accumulation of capital to outline the foundations of her novel understanding of both democratic-socialist revolution and of a society that would point beyond social democracy as well as Bolshevism – a vision that will gain new significance in the twenty first century. This book looks upon the lasting heritage of Rosa Luxemburg as the groundbreaking thinker of the unity between democracy and socialism.

Book excerpt/synopsis : Rosa Luxemburg was one of the most controversial and important figures in the development of European Marxism. In many respects, her role was unique; she was at once one of the founders of modern Communism and one of its severest critics. With the exception of Lenin, she was perhaps the only Marxist of the twentieth century who bridged the profound divide of the Bolshevik revolution; both pro-Bolsheviks and anti-Bolsheviks still look to her work and life as a source of inspiration.Nettl's biography, first published in the 1960s, was the first to appear in the West and remains today still unsurpassed in breadth and depth of scholarship. It is conceived on a large scale. Rosa Luxemburg's political activity is dealt with in the full context of the German, Polish, and Russian Socialist movements in which she was active. Though the story concentrates on its central figure, a great many of her important contemporaries appear vividly in these pages. Particular attention was paid to her relationship with Kautsky in Germany and Lenin in Russia.Rosa Luxemburg's ideas are discussed in separate chapters. Nettl sought to analyse her views both in relation to current Marxist thinking and as a wider reflection of her times. Thus the revisionist controversy is examined in some detail; so are her controversial comments on the revolutions of 1905 and 1917 and her quarrel with the German Party leadership. In particular, the author used both sociology and political theory as a means of illuminating Rosa Luxemburg's career in its actual setting. But, beneath the political process, every effort has been made to capture the image of a scintillating, gifted woman. Unlike many revolutionaries, Rosa Luxemburg led an intense and rewarding private life, to which the author tried to do justice.With the use of published sources, unpublished archival material, including many of Rosa Luxemburg's letters, it is now possible for the first time to produce a rounded portrait of an important and fascinating personality.
Download PDF or read online The Revolutionary Legacy of Rosa Luxemburg Book by Marie Frederiksen and published by Wellred Books. This book was released on 2022-04-02 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : This book sets out to examine Rosa Luxemburg’s ideas, not from the distorted myths about her political ideas, or solely about personal questions such as her love life, but from Luxemburg’s very own writings. It is an attempt to provide an insight into the treasure trove of ideas and revolutionary theory that Luxemburg’s works constitute. The book shows that the real Rosa Luxemburg is often very far from the myths and rumours that surround her: Rosa Luxemburg was, is and remains a revolutionary.
Download PDF or read online Rosa Luxemburg in Action Book by Rosemary H. T. O'Kane and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2014-11-20 with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Neither a work concerned only with her Marxist writings nor a personal biography concerned with her private life, this book examines Rosa Luxemburg’s ideas on revolution and democracy and how the two are bound together by her views on the importance of political action. Stretching, historically, from 1863 to the present, this book covers in great detail the history and developments within the German SPD during her time, the 1905 and 1917 Russian Revolutions, the German Revolution, the outbreak of World War I and the imperialism that fuelled it. It then moves on to consider political and historical developments after her death and examines her arguments on revolution and democracy in the light of the post-revolutionary government in Nicaragua: the one violent revolution that sought to establish social democracy (but failed). Also covered are aspects of Rosa Luxemburg’s life, her important writings and actions, the relevant Marxist debates in which she was involved, including, for example Bernstein’s arguments on social democracy through reform and, with Lenin, on revolutionary organization. A welcomed and timely collection presenting an important examination of the political and social context in which Luxemburg developed her activities and views and a complete understanding of the history of social democracy, the revolutionary times of a century ago and the relevance of their events and ideas for more recent revolutions for democracy in the twenty-first century.
Download PDF or read online The Collected Essays and Criticism, Volume 1 Book by Clement Greenberg and published by University of Chicago Press. This book was released on 1986 with total page 296 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Clement Greenberg (1909–1994), champion of abstract expressionism and modernism—of Pollock, Miró, and Matisse—has been esteemed by many as the greatest art critic of the second half of the twentieth century, and possibly the greatest art critic of all time. On radio and in print, Greenberg was the voice of "the new American painting," and a central figure in the postwar cultural history of the United States. Greenberg first established his reputation writing for the Partisan Review, which he joined as an editor in 1940. He became art critic for the Nation in 1942, and was associate editor of Commentary from 1945 until 1957. His seminal essay, "Avant-Garde and Kitsch" set the terms for the ongoing debate about the relationship of modern high art to popular culture. Though many of his ideas have been challenged, Greenberg has influenced generations of critics, historians, and artists, and he remains influential to this day.
