Summary "In this work, first published 1971, Pierre Broue 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 proletariat."--Jacket
