This translation was first published in 1910. According to the Translator's Preface: "Bebel's work, "Die Frau und der Socialismus," rendered in this English version with the title "Woman under Socialism," is the best-aimed shot at the existing social system, both strategically and tactically considered. It is wise tactics and strategy to attack an enemy on his weakest side. The Woman Question is the weakest link in the capitalist mail. " According to Wikipedia: "Ferdinand August Bebel (22 February 1840, Deutz, Cologne – 13 August 1913 Passugg, Graubünden) was a German Marxist politician, writer, and orator.
