52 Council Communists

In the early twentieth century the ‘Dutch Marxist school’ comprised the poet Herman Gorter (1864-1927) and the astronomer Anton Pannekoek (1873-1960). After the First World War, in addition to the Communist Party in the Netherlands, a movement more critical of the party emerged from this circle as well, impressed by the independent workers’ councils that had formed in Russia, Germany, Hungary, and Italy. These Dutch ‘council communists’ continued to disseminate their analyses. This copy from their press service belonged to Pannekoek, who ticked the articles he published anonymously there.
