New Publication: "Gustav Landauer - Zwischen Anarchismus und Tradition"

Hentrich & Hentrich, the publishing house for Jewish culture and contemporary history, has published a new publication entitled "Gustav Landauer - Zwischen Anarchismus und Tradition" by Sebastina Kunze, a member of the professorship for Jewish Studies at the University of Erfurt.

Gustav Landauer (1870-1919) is one of the most prominent representatives of the German-speaking anarchism of his time, yet is largely unknown today. As a political thinker, philosopher, intellectual and literary critic, Landauer was active in various groups such as the workers' anarchism or the Forte circle and was widely received. However, his work had a great impact especially within the Jewish youth: Gershom Scholem, Walter Benjamin, Manés Sperber, Paul Celan and many others read and praised Landauer's writings. This volume sketches Landauer's life and work to provide an insight into the various facets of this fascinating intellectual.
