9780192836885: The Condition of the Working Class in England (Oxford World's Classics)

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.

From the Back Cover:

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 It is a vitally important political, social and historical document.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:

David McLellan is a leading scholar of Marx and Marxism, and the editor of Marxism: Essential Writings (#10.95) and Selected Writings (#14.95).
