Wilhelm Liebknecht is little known today outside his native Germany. Yet, in the late 19th century, Liebknecht was renowned throughout the industrialized world as a champion of working people and a prime mover in the German Social Democratic Party. His speeches and pamphlets were translated into numerous languages and helped inspire generations of militant workers and socialist activists. This volume brings together a sampling of Liebknecht's major writings; essays on Liebknecht by colleagues and observers of the times; and a chronology, glossary, and other aids designed to facilitate a better understanding of the period and Liebknecht's impact.
