Rosa Luxemburg (1871–1919) was Polish, Jewish, and a woman in an international socialist movement dominated by Germans, gentiles, and men. For Luxemburg, there was no real socialism without democracy and no real democracy without socialism. In this biography Stephen Eric Bronner establishes Luxemburg's legacy to contemporary socialist theory and practice.

“Resurrecting the legacy of one who maintained ‘Freedom is always and exclusively freedom for those who think differently,’ Bronner has written an admirable and pertinent book which contributes to debates among democratic socialists as to ‘the way forward.'”
