“Rosa Luxemburg’s letters, with all their exquisite details, read as well as any novel … Personal or political, they are beautiful, powerful, and succinct.”—Idiom

The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg is a … kind of memorial, a kind of sliver of one woman’s life bound together in one place … Rosa Luxemburg comes alive in these pages … if you love or admire or are just fascinated by her, then you’ve no excuse not to buy this excellent book.”—PopMatters
