Reviews - What do customers think about The Essential Rosa Luxemburg: Reform or Revolution and the Mass Strike?

Excellent  Aug 11, 2008
Rosa Luxemburg weighed in definitively at a very young age on the question of reform or revolution in this important text, and forever demolished the perspective of Socialism via reform. By deconstructing Bernstein's work, Luxumberg reveals how reformism fails to address the inherent contradictions of capitalism in the way Marx has shown. Consequently, reformism fails to penetrate at the true nature of capital, and is unable to overturn it. Social revolution is the only way to Socialism, for the means of production themselves must be transferred to the working class for economic justice to be achieved. Although Luxemburg made some incorrect assessments of the Bolsheviks and her own SDP, her insightful political texts such as Reform or Revolution and The Mass Strike will continue to be important for workers of the world.
A treasure of political science history, offering valuable insights that transcend its time.  May 4, 2008
Rosa Luxemburg was a visionary socialist in Germany during the early twentieth century, who insisted that ordinary working people could fight and win battles for not only improvements in their daily working conditions, but also the struggle to create a society based on justice and equality. The Essential Rosa Luxemburg: Reform or Revolution and The Mass Strike presents the full text of Rosa Luxemburg's classics "Reform or Revolution" and "The Mass Strike", enhanced with extensive explanatory notes, appendices, and introductions. The two most pivotal concepts discussed are the questions of whether capitalism can be reformed and refined into a system of justice, and what efforts are most needed to bring about such a transformation? "Producers' cooperatives can survive within capitalist economy only if they manage to suppress, by means of some detour, the capitalist-controlled contradiction between the mode of production and the mode of exchange. And they can accomplish this only by removing themselves artificially from the influence of the laws of free competition. And they can succeed in doing the last only when they assure themselves beforehand of a constant circle of consumers, that is, when they assure themselves of a constant market." A treasure of political science history, offering valuable insights that transcend its time.
