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.

PRAISE FOR DISCOVERING IMPERIALISM

“[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

WITNESSES TO PERMANENT REVOLUTION: THE DOCUMENTARY RECORD

AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK FROM HAYMARKET BOOKS

Edited and translated by Richard B. Day and Daniel Gaido
http://www.haymarketbooks.org/pb/Witnesses-to-Permanent-Revolution

Also available through Amazon.com

The theory of permanent revolution has long been associated with Leon Trotsky. Though he was the most brilliant of its proponents, these newly translated documents, most of them available in English for the first time, demonstrate that Trotsky was only one of several leading figures of international Marxism engaged in a debate, sparked by the first Russian Revolution in 1905, about the form workers’ struggle would take in less developed countries. Among the figures included in these discussions were Karl Kautsky, Rosa Luxemburg, Franz Mehring, Parvus, and David Ryazanov

Richard B. Day is Professor of Political Economy at the University of Toronto, Canada. He has published extensively on Soviet economic and political history, including Leon Trotsky and the Politics of Economic Isolation.

Daniel F. Gaido is a researcher at the National Research Council (Conicet) in Argentina. He is the author of The Formative Period of American Capitalism and is currently working on a book on the history of German social democracy

Praise for Witnesses to Permanent Revolution:

“Since the world is again in the midst of an economic crisis, the arguments here are not without contemporary relevance, even if from today’s perspective it is a polemic where everybody is right. Summing up: recommended.” —A. Ezergailis, Choice

“Sometimes reading debates between figures on the left, involving historical references readers may not be familiar with, can be a daunting or even demoralising experience. But the brilliant and precise annotating of this collection, along with a short introduction to each piece, makes every article accessible to a wide range of readers…Day and Gaido have done a fantastic service with this immense collection. Witnesses to Permanent Revolution is a fascinating and thought provoking book and one that genuinely sheds new light on past debates about socialism that can help to inform the future.” —Esme Choonara, International Socialism
