Discovering Imperialism: Social Democracy to World War I

AVAILABLE NOW • $50 • ISBN: 978-1-60846-235-3

THOUGH PRIMARILY associated with the most prominent figures in the history of European Marxism, the theory of imperialism was actually developed through lively and engaged debates within the Second International from 1898–1916. This volume assembles and translates for the first time all of the main documents produced over the course of these discussions.


“[T]his is a really excellent book, which is deeply informative about the development of Marxist ideas about imperialism before Lenin’s famous text … [It] should be as widely read on the left as possible. It opens up a vista of a much more complex debate and development than our ‘traditional’ left narratives of the issue allow us to see.”
—Mike Macnair, The Weekly Worker
