"Freedom is Indivisible: Rudolf Hilferding's Correspondence with Karl Kautsky, Leon Trotsky, and Paul Hertz, 1902-1938," Dr. Bill Smaldone [Dave MacMillan], ZOOM
Dr. SmaldoneDuring the first four decades of the 20th century, Rudolf Hilferding was one of European socialism's leading thinkers and a major figure in German politics. His correspondence with some of the leading political figures of his day illuminates the contradictions of an era in which the socialist movement seemed poised to transform the world, but then went down to stunning defeat.

Bill Smaldone is the E. J. Whipple Professor of History at Willamette. He has published several books on the history of European socialism, including most recently European Socialism: a concise history with documents (2nd edition, 2019) and, with Marc Blum of the University of Kentucky, Louisville, a two volume collection of documents titled: Austro-Marxism: The Ideology of Unity. His volume on Hilferding's correspondence will be published by Brill in 2021.
