It will provide students with an accurate and unabridged edition of the classic defence of democratic socialism and the first significant critique of revolutionary Marxism from within the socialist movement.

First published in , at the height of the Revisionist Debate, it argued that capitalism was not heading for the major crisis predicted by Marx, and that socialism could be achieved by piece-meal reform within a democratic constitutional framework.

The introduction sites Bernstein's work in its historical and intellectual context, and this edition also provides students with all the necessary reference material for understanding this important text.

Bernstein: The Preconditions of Socialism

Eduard Bernstein 6 January — 18 December was a German social-democratic Marxist theorist and politician. A member of the Social Democratic Party SPD , Bernstein had held close association to Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels , but he saw flaws in Marxist thinking and began to criticise views held by Marxism when he investigated and challenged the Marxist materialist theory of history. Bernstein distinguished between early and mature Marxism. The former, exemplified by Marx and Engels's The Communist Manifesto was opposed by Bernstein for what he regarded as its violent Blanquist tendencies. Bernstein embraced the latter, holding that socialism could be achieved by peaceful means through incremental legislative reform in democratic societies. His father was a locomotive driver.
