First trade edition. The book for which Luxemburg received her PhD from the Faculty of Law and Economics of the University of Zurich. In it ‘she argued that the development of industrial capitalism in the Polish kingdom depended heavily on the Russian market and that the economy of the Polish kingdom would never be more than a part of the tsarist economy. The analysis in this book formed the basis upon which the Polish Social Democratic party built its political program.' (International Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences, IX, p.496)
