The inspiring life, engaging prose and intellectual prowess of Rosa Luxemburg leap off the page through Kate Evans’ art in a new graphic biography of the revolutionary socialist. Red Rosa captures the many elements of Luxemburg’s life, from her economic theories to her constant opposition to war, and from idyllic times with lovers and friends to bitter clashes with reformist elements on the German left.

In this excerpt, the teenage Rosa Luxemburg teaches her family about Marx’s Das Kapital, explaining material and social relations and the problem of money.
