Description
The most comprehensive collection of Rosa Luxemburg’s correspondence ever published in English, including 190 letters written to leading figures in the European and international labour and socialist movements – Leo Jogiches, Karl Kautsky, Clara Zetkin and Karl Liebknecht – who were her closest friends, lovers and colleagues. Many of these letters appear for the first time in English translation; all help to illuminate the inner life of this iconic revolutionary, who was at once an economic and social theorist, a political activist and a lyrical stylist. Her political concerns are revealed alongside her personal struggles within a socialist movement that was often hostile to independently minded women.
