The German Revolution 1917-1923 by Pierre Broue
   
  Price: $50.00/£30.00

  Available in the US from Haymarket Books
  <http://www.haymarketbooks.org/>
  Available in the UK from Merlin Press <http://www.merlinpress.co.uk/>

  On October 12, 1923, Grigory Zinoviev, president of the Communist
  International wrote the following in Pravda:

  "The German events are developing with the inexorability of fate. The
  path which it took the Russian Revolution twelve years to cover, from
  1906 to 1917, will have taken the German Revolution five years, from
  1918 to 1923. … The proletarian revolution is knocking at Germany's
  door; you would have to be blind not to see it. … Very soon, everyone
  will see that this autumn of 1923 is a turning point, not just for the
  history of Germany, but for the history of the whole world."

  In fact, far from being on the point of triumph, the German Revolution
  was on the verge of irredeemable disaster, which would soon inflict
  terrible consequences on Germany and the world.

  In this magisterial work, first published in 1971 and still
  unsurpassed, Pierre Broué meticulously reconstitutes the six decisive
  years during which—between “ultra-leftism” and “opportunism,”
  “sectarianism” and “revisionism,” “activism” and “passivity”—the German
  revolutionaries attempted to begin a new chapter in the history of the
  working class.

  “Germany from 1917 to 1923 was the scene of the greatest working class
  revolutionary upsurge ever in an advanced capitalist country. With the
  old order disintegrating under the hammer blows of military defeat and
  economic collapse, parties and groupuscules, trade unions and factory
  committees, battled employers, the government, and paramilitaries to
  inaugurate a new proletarian order.

  “In his monumental classic, Pierre Broué follows the revolutionary
  process from the standpoint of the revolutionaries and their multiple
  organizations, strewn across Europe and Russia, as they struggled to
  impose conceptual order on the unprecedented cataclysms unfolding
  before them, to frame strategies and tactics, and to win over the mass
  movements, in intense competition with their communist, socialist, and
  anarchist rivals.

  “Broué enables us to feel that we are actually living through these
  epoch-making events, not just by virtue of his brilliant narrative,
  but, even more so, through his ongoing analysis and critique of the
  revolutionaries' intra-party debates, sectarian maneuvers, and all too
  often catastrophic decisions. As an introduction to revolutionary
  theory and practice, for then and for now, this book is in a class by
  itself.”

  – Robert Brenner, Professor and Director, UCLA Center for Social Theory
  and Comparative History

  Pierre Broué (1926–2005) was for many years professor of contemporary
  history at the Institut d'études politiques in Grenoble. A world
  renowned specialist of the communist and international workers'
  movements, he is the founder of the Cahiers Léon Trotsky, editor of
  Leon Trotsky's writings in French, and the author of many books,
  including Revolution and the Civil War in Spain (with Etienne Témime,
  1961), Le Parti bolchévique. Histoire du Parti communiste de l'URSS
  (1963), Les Procès de Moscou (1965), La Question chinoise dans
  l'Internationale communiste (1965), Le Printemps des peoples commence à
  Prague (1969), La Révolution espagnole (1972), L'Assassinat de Trotsky
  (1980), Trotsky (1988), Staline et la Révolution. Le cas espagnol
  (1993), Rakovsky ou la Révolution dans tous les pays (1996), Histoire
  de l'Internationale communiste, 1919-1943 (1997), and Communistes
  contre Staline. Massacre d'une generation (2003).


  Between Equal Rights: A Marxist Theory of International Law by China
  Mieville

  Price: $18.00/ £19.99

  Available in the US from Haymarket Books
  <http://www.haymarketbooks.org/>
  Available in the UK from Pluto Books <http://www.plutobooks.co.uk>

  Drawing on Marxist theory and a critical history of international law
  from the sixteenth century to the present day, Miéville examines
  international legal norms and shows that they have always been
  complicit with the violence of empires.

  Miéville's brilliantly original book is an indispensable guide for
  anyone concerned with international law. It is the most comprehensive
  scholarly account available of the central theoretical debates about
  the foundations of international law. It offers a guide for the lay
  reader into the central texts in the field and it mounts a formidable
  challenge to experts to address fundamental theoretical issues about
  the subject, which are too often simply ignored.
  --Peter Gowan, Professor of International Relations, London
  Metropolitan University

  “The most sophisticated Left critique of international law available
  today as well as one of the most significant contributions to the
  theory and history of international law I have read. It raises the
  debate about law's role in a globalized world order to a completely new
  level.”
  --Martti Koskenniemi, Director, Erik Castrén Institute of International
  Law, University of Helsinki

  “ We have waited a long time for a comprehensive and progressive
  critique of international law. Miéville proves the wait was worth it.”
  --Anthony Chase, Nova Southeastern University Law Center

  China Miéville is an independent researcher and an award-winning
  novelist. He is a member of the editorial board of Historical
  Materialism. Miéville's novel Perdido Street Station won the Arthur C.
  Clarke Award and was nominated for a British Science Fiction
  Association Award.

  The Theory of Revolution in the Young Marx by Michael Lowy
   
  Price: $15.00
   
  Available in the US from Haymarket Books
  <http://www.haymarketbooks.org/>

   In the 1840s, the young German journalist Karl Marx developed ideas
  about modern society that remain as relevant today as when they were
  first developed. Here, Löwy shows the lasting force of Marx’s early
  writings on alienation and emancipation.

  This book is brilliant, incisive, honest and deserves to be read with
  attention. It is an important event in Marxist theoretical production.”
  —Politique Hebdo

  A remarkable essay, whose merit is not only theoretical, but also
  historical, because it examines unknown aspects of the evolution of
  young Marx’s thinking.” —Politis

  Michael Löwy is research director in sociology at the Centre National
  de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris. He is the author of many books,
  including Romanticism Against the Tide of Modernity.

  Published in 2005 by Haymarket Books. 206 pages, paperback, isbn
  1-931859-191.
