Quest for Evolutionary Socialism : Eduard Bernstein and Social Democracy - 97 edition

Quest for Evolutionary Socialism : Eduard Bernstein and Social Democracy (ISBN10: 0521582008; ISBN13: 9780521582001)
ISBN13: 978-0521582001
ISBN10: 0521582008

Summary: The Quest for Evolutionary Socialism is a timely response to the need for a new, comprehensive biography of the life and works of Eduard Bernstein, the German 'Father of Marxist Revisionism'. Professor Steger addresses recent academic developments and current debates on the 'End of Socialism'. Setting this study within the historical context of the European labor movement, Steger thus interprets Bernstein's 'Evolutionary Socialism' as an ethically-motivated quest for
liberty, solidarity and distributive justice. The quest for evolutionary socialism is neither a conventional political history nor a traditional "historiography of political ideas," but is an examination of past and present interactions between European social democratic politics and socialist political ideas. Since no study of Bernstein's life and work has appeared since Peter Gay's 1952 study, The dilemma of democratic socialism, Steger's book is a timely response to the need for a new comprehensive biography of the German "Father of Marxist Revisionalism," as it not only incorporates recent academic developments, but also addresses current debates on the "end of socialism," as a result of the collapse of Marxism-Leninism, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the chronic ailments of European social democracy.
