Rosa Luxembourg:

Essayist, memoirist, and critic Vivian Gornick, author of  The Men in My Life and Fierce Attachments, and Paul LeBlanc, professor of history at La Roche University and editor of Rosa Luxemburg: Reflections and Writings.
Hosts: Marissa Brostoff
Broadcast Date: Jun 12 2011 Beyond the Pale 

Rosa Luxemburg was a revolutionary icon, a pathbreaking Marxist theorist, and, according to the editors of Verso's new volume of her correspondence, a "fanatical" letter writer. Gornick and LeBlanc discuss--and debate--what Luxemburg's letters can tell us about women and communism at the dawn of the Soviet era.
