BOOK REVIEWS/COMPTES RENDUS Luise Domemann, Clara Zetkin: Leben und Wirken, Berlin: Dietz Verlag, 1973. 562 pp. M 11, 50. By the author's own admission, Clara Zetkin: Leben und Wirken is neither a definitive nor, in the strictest sense, a scholarly work. Rather, Dornemann has written a popular biography in an effort to make Zetkin better known to a wider circle. This somewhat limits the value of her work for scholars, who, outside the German-speaking world, will primarily compose her reader- ship. Zetkin is unquestionably a sympathetic and important figure in the history of the German socialist and Communist movements. The daughter of a socially conscious, devoutly Protestant schoolmaster and a feminist mother, she early became interested in women's rights and in the plight of the working classes. She trained as a teacher, then an unusual occupation for middle- class women, under the distinguished and influential Auguste Schmidt. Disappointed, however, by the inability of bourgeois feminists to deal with social issues, she was increasingly drawn to the SPD, losing Schmidt's favor and considerably decreasing the possibility of well-paid employ- ment. In 1882 she followed Ossip Zetkin, a Russian emigre whom she met through the SPD, into exile in Switzerland
