Condition of the Working Class in England (93 Edition)by Friedrich Engels
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
This, the first book written by Engels during his stay in Manchester from 1842 to 1844, is the best known and in many ways the most astute study of the working class in Victorian England. The fluency of his writing, the personal nature of his insights, and his talent for mordant satire all combiine to make Engels's account of the lives of the victims of early industrial change an undeniable classic.
This is Engel's best known work, and is still in many ways the best study of the working class in Victorian England. What Cobbett had done for agricultural poverty in his "Rural Rides", Engels did in this work on the plight of industrial workers in England in the 1840s.
