DER SOCIALDEMOKRATISCHE ZUKUNFTSSTAAT VOR DEM DEUTSHEN REICHSTAGE (FEBRUAR 1893). Wien: Verlag des "Industriellen Club" und des "Niederösterreichischen Gewerbe-Vereines," 1893. Octavo, pp. [1-3] 4-55 [56: blank], original blue-gray wrappers printed in black. First (separate?) edition. Utopian proposal by "practical men," who specifically distance themselves from the impractical utopians to make realistic projections of a future society. Probably an offprint from a larger work also published in 1893. Pressure in the Reichstag by the Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands (SPD) forced a number of social and political reforms in Germany during the late nineteenth century. Ferdinand August Bebel (1840-1913), whose ideas and comments are often mentioned in the text, was a German socialist politician, writer, and orator. He became the leading figure of the social democratic movement in Germany and from 1892 until his death served as chairman of the Social Democratic Party of Germany.
