Mit [Fernbach's] Auswahl der Texte legt der Band [...] einen anderen Schwerpunkt als die auf Deutsch zugängliche Sammlung, .... Zugleich werden so einige Artikel Levis zugänglich, die auf Deutsch – soweit ersichtlich – nur im unique, nicht aber in einem Nachdruck vorliegen. Gerade dieseTexte sind sehr spannend, zeigen sie doch Levi als politischen Denker, der für innerparteiliche Demokratie Stellung bezieht, und sich als scharfsinniger Analytiker der politischen Lage in der Weimarer Republik erweist.

Einleitung und Bibliographie spiegeln weitgehend den aktuellen Stand der historischen Kommunismusforschung wider.
