Reform and Revolution (otherwise known as Reform or Revolution) is a collection of chapters from Marxism: The Last Refuge of the Bourgeoisie?, a book by Paul Mattick, Sr. arranged and published posthumously by Paul Mattick, Jr.

In Reform and Revolution, Mattick, Sr. relates understanding of reformism, radicalism, and revolutionary action through the lens of historical materialism, as reformism being another maintaining of capitalist form. Through the book, Mattick details that capitalism and the historical process is to be analyzed through the accumulation of capital maintained through social forces of production, rationalizing labor exploitation towards its expansion. "As capital expands, so does the working class."

Paul Mattick, Sr. (March 13, 1904 - February 7, 1981) was a Marxist political writer and social revolutionary, whose thought can be placed within the council communist and left communist traditions.
