Henryk Grossman is best-known as a Marxist economist but he also wrote valuable political texts as a leader of the revolutionary organisation of Jewish workers in the Polish province of Austria, before the First World War, as a member of the Communist Workers Party of Poland, during the early 1920s, and as a Marxist academic during the early 1930s. These writings dealt with the political situation, tactics and strategy of Jewish Social Democratic Party of Galicia, the initial reception of Marxism in Poland and then substantial entries on left wing movements, organisations and individuals in a multi-volume reference work.
Henryk Grossman (1881–1950) was the preeminent Marxist economist of the twentieth century. He was the founding theoretician and secretary of the Jewish Social Democratic Party of Galicia, a Professor at the Free University of Warsaw later, as a member of the Institute for Social Research, at the University of Frankfurt, and then at the University of Leipzig.
