How does Marxism support the struggle for reforms?
Hasn’t Capitalism changed since the days of Marx?
Can Capitalism be gradually reformed into Socialism?
If not, how can Socialism be achieved?
These ideas and questions, frequently raised in the labour movement today, are not new. Eduard Bernstein, a leader of the German Social Democratic Party argued at the turn of the 20th century for a revision of Marx’s theories ‘in the light of recent evidence’. Rosa Luxemburg, and outstanding revolutionary figure until her murder in 1919, led the struggle against ‘Revisionism’. Reform or Revolution is her reply to Bernstein’s ideas.
This 2006 edition also includes three other works by Luxemburg, namely Leninism or Marxism?, The Mass Strike, the Political Party, and the Trade Union, and The Russian Revolution.
