Description

Rosa Luxemburg, Women’s Liberation and Marx’s Philosophy of Revolution

By Raya Dunayevskaya

Univ. of Illinois Press: Urbana and Chicago, 1991. 280 pgs.

Dunayevskaya’s third book, first published in 1983 (by Humanities Press, Atlantic Highlands, NJ.) Hoping that the women’s liberation movement would delve into Marx’s theory, Dunayevskaya introduced Luxemburg’s then-unknown feminist dimension in the first section. This section also includes a critique of Luxemburg’s theories of accumulation of capital—a matter still hotly contested today.

The second section gives highlights of the history of the women’s movement “as revolutionary force and reason.”

The third section revisits Marx from his earliest to last works, including his Critique of the Gotha Program, which the author sees as providing “new ground” for revolutionary organization.

This edition includes a foreword by Adrienne Rich.
