Library Journal on The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg

Missing

Library Journal has published an early review of The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg—"the most comprehensive [collection] published in English, with over two-thirds of the letters translated here for the first time" ...

This English-language edition of selected letters of Polish-born Marxist thinker and founder of the German Communist Party, Luxemburg, who was assassinated in 1919, is the most comprehensive published in English, with over two-thirds of the letters translated here for the first time. Described as a companion to Verso's projected 14-volume "Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg," it is based on the German Herzlichst, Ihre Rosa (Most Warmly Yours, Rosa), with 40 letters added to the 190 in that volume. The letters (originally in German, Polish, and Russian) will give informed English-language readers new access to the intellectual, political, and personal life of a leading Marxist theorist and activist. The recipients include political associates Leo Jogiches (also her lover for a time), Karl Kautsky, Karl Liebknecht, and Clara Zetkin. 

Visit Library Journal to read the review in full. The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg will be launched in New York on March 14 at NYU's Tishman Auditorium.
