Mostly Historical Analysis5 star

If the title leads you to believe this book is about revolution IN GENERAL, be warned that it is an analytical examination of the revolutionary period in Germany during a specific time, detailing the doings of all the political parties that were involved, and how those doings affected the historical course of events. As usual, Marx demonstrates his points in this analysis with a mastery of dialectical thought.55
