Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the classic texts of Marxist thought, a vitally important political, social and historical document, written out of a deep humanity and with great analytic skill.

Synopsis:

Frederick Engels (1820-1895), the son of a wealthy German textile manufacturer, moved in 1842 to England to take a position in a factory near Manchester partially owned by his father. Engels met Karl Marx in 1844 and began a lifelong association with him. The two are considered to be the founders of modern communism. The Condition of the Working Class in England (1845; English translation 1847) is one of the classic texts of Marxist thought, standing besides such other of Engels' works as Socialism: Utopian and Scientific and The Dialectic of Nature. It is a vitally important political, social and historical document.

About the Author

Friedrich Engels was born in 1820, in the German city of Barmen. He died in London in 1895 while editing the fourth volume of Capital.

Karl Marx was an influential 19th-century philosopher, economist, journalist, and revolutionary. His historical and sociological ideas held sway over generations of scholars, and his incisive descriptions of the workings and effects of capitalism inspired both revolution and reform.

Hobsbawm is Emeritus Professor of History at Birbeck College, University of London. He was educated in Vienna, Berlin, London, and Cambridge. He divides his time between New York and London.
