I’m no scholar of history. Almost all of my reading of primary sources occurred in high school. This made reading Fighting Fascism both a challenge and a pleasure.
On the one hand, I was missing a lot of context. Author Clara Zetkin’s words are full of references to contemporary people and movements, and try as it might, this tiny collection doesn’t offer nearly enough background to elucidate it all. If I was more rigorous, I would have stopped and researched each person, organization, and treaty as they were mentioned.
