The first half of this book walks the reader through the fundamentals of

council communism and the conditions that led to the development of

these ideas. The second half of the book demonstrates the rich depth of

Pannekoek’s thinking, with penetrating essays and insightful letters on

revolutionary organization, state capitalism, Marxism, the limitations

of trade unions and political parties, the potential of wildcat strikes,

public vs. common ownership, the necessity of combining organization

and freedom, the deceptiveness of parliamentarism, workers’ councils,

the vital importance of working-class self-emancipation, and more.

With the recent resurgence in the naïve hope that Democratic Socialism

and trade unionism can act as radical methods to meaningfully confront

or even overthrow capitalism, Pannekoek’s council communist ideas

encourage workers to think for themselves rather than submit to the

dead-end traditions of the old movement and embrace the collective

self-activity that can build a new movement capable of overcoming the

struggles we face ahead.
