Rosa Luxemburg is revered as one of the leading socialists of the early 20th century, whose vision for justice and equality continues to resonate throughout workers movements today. Paul Frölich was one of the founding members of the German Communist Party and a close comrade of Luxemburg's. Striking a balance between personal insight and political analysis, he traces Rosa's development from a humble Polish girl to the most important leader of the German Communist Party.

In this work, Peter Breiner explores the implications of Max Weber's political sociology for political judgment and democratic theory. In the process, he rejects what is problematic and retains what is valuable in the theorist's political thought and then uses the results to elaborate upon and extend democratic theory. Breiner demonstrates the tension between the subjective and objective dimensions of Weber's logic of rationality, and describes how Weber exploits this tension in judging the feasibility of social and political forms such as socialism, radical democracy, capitalism, and the nation. Breiner develops a concept of participatory democracy from within Weber's logic of power and legitimate domination. Unlike any of the many existing arguments for participatory democracy, it claims that direct participation in politics requires that citizens be willing to take moral risks and take responsibility for the paradoxical outcomes of political action. The book situates Weber in relation to great political theorists of the past, such as Thucydides, Machiavelli, Rousseau, and Gramsci, as well as engaging some of the most important Weberian scholarship. Rigorous, tightly argued, and concise, the volume will interest both political and social theorists: the former because of the focus on judgment and participatory democracy and the latter for the author's thorough and novel treatment of Weber.

Las figuras sobre las que Hannah Arendt reflexiona en este libro tienen en común tan sólo la época que les tocó vivir. ¿Cuáles fueron las respuestas de Karl Jaspers, Juan XXIII, Isak Dinesen, Walter Benjamin, Hermann Broch o Bertolt Brecht, entre otros, a las condiciones externas del mundo durante la primera mitad del siglo xx, con sus catástrofes políticas, sus desastres morales y su sorprendente desarrollo en las artes y las ciencias?. Hannah Arendt se acerca a estos bien conocidos personajes guiándose por su concepción filosófica acerca de lo que puede y debe saber un ser humano. No hay que hurgar en las intimidades de las personas para captar los rasgos que los hacen únicos e inmortales. Con una excepcional capacidad de percepción de las cualidades humanas más inconfundibles y profundas, Arendt señala su manera de estar presentes en el mundo, de mostrarse a la luz pública, ya sea en sus obras o sus actos. Nos muestra con precisión y sin eufemismos en qué medida estas figuras lucharon, se tambalearon y tropezaron debido a sus circunstancias y su demonio particular, para ser, después de todo y a veces a pesar de ellos, fieles a sí mismos y a sus aspiraciones más profundas.
