Contemporaries across the spectrum of Left thought, from Antonio Negri to Noam Chomsky, are falling over each other to claim the mantle of Left Communism. Left Communism is the theory and practice of worker control and self-organization whose adherents provided the main opposition to the Bolsheviks. Rarely printed, often cited, Pannekoekâs Workersâ Councils is the Das Kapital of Left Communism. This updated edition includes a substantial introduction from Noam Chomsky, illuminating the continuing relevance of this classic text.
"An urgent message to the futureâ are we listening?âfrom the most brilliant theoretician of libertarian com-munism."âMike Davis, author of City of Quartz
Anton Pannekoek was a Dutch worker, Socialist, and astronomer. He wrote Workersâ Councils amidst Nazi occupation of Holland.
