9780140444865: The Condition of the Working Class in England (Classics S)

This forceful polemic explores the staggering human cost of the Industrial Revolution in Victorian England. Engels paints an unforgettable picture of daily life in the new industrial towns, and for miners and agricultural workers in a savage indictment of the greed of the bourgeoisie. His later preface, written for the first English edition of 1892 and included here, brought the story up-to-date in the light of forty years' further reflection.

About the Author:

Born in Westphalia in 1820, Friedrich Engels was the son of a textile manufacturer. After military training in Berlin and already a convert to communism, Engels went to Manchester in 1842 to represent the family firm. A relationship with a mill-hand, Mary Bums, and friendship with local Owenites and Chartists helped to inspire his famous early work, The Condition of the Working Class in England in 1844. Collaboration with Marx began in 1844 and in 1847 he composed the first drafts of the Manifesto. After playing an active part in the German revolutions, Engels returned to work in Manchester until 1870, when he moved to London. He not only helped Marx financially, but reinforced their shared position through his own expositions of the new theory. After Marx’s death, he prepared the unfinished volumes of Capital for publication. He died in London in 1895.

Book Description Penguin Classics, 1987. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This classic Marxist text is an important document of social conditions in a Victorian industrial city. Engels describes the appalling conditions of the working class with detail, accuracy, compassion and anger. He discusses the daily life of the factory hands, the horrible industrial accidents and the pollution of the city. He contrasts their squalid living conditions with the luxury of the bourgeois manufacturers (like himself) and also compares Manchester with other Victorian cities. He also discusses the influx of immigrants from Ireland and from the country to the big cities. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0140444866
