Boudin (1874–1952) was a prominent American Marxist theoretician, lawyer, and author. He was born in Russia and emigrated to the United States in 1891. Boudin was a significant figure in the American socialist movement during the early 20th century. Boudin is perhaps best known for his two-volume work, "The Theoretical System of Karl Marx in the Light of Recent Criticism," published in 1907. This work was one of the first comprehensive examinations of Marx's theories in the English language and helped to popularize Marx's ideas among English-speaking socialists. As a lawyer, Boudin was involved in several high-profile cases, often representing labor unions and other leftist organizations. He was known for his strong defense of civil liberties and his opposition to political repression. Boudin's other works include "Socialism and War" (1916), in which he argued against socialist support for World War I, and "Government by Judiciary" (1932), a critique of judicial activism." // Constitutional Law; Legislation -- United States.
