German Social Democracy. Six lectures.
With an appendix on social democracy and the woman question in Germany, by Alys Russell, B.A.
First edition of Russell’s first book, in the second issue blue cloth without publisher’s ads, one of fewer than 1,000 copies. Russell spent his honeymoon with his first wife in Berlin, and though he was sympathetic to the reformist aims of the German Social Democratic Party, then the most influential Marxist movement in Europe, he made in this volume some trenchant and far-sighted criticisms of Marxist dogmas. With a gift inscription from the literary critic John Dover Wilson to his brother Michael.
