Review:

“Marx and Engels: Their Contribution to the Democratic Breakthrough, by August Nimtz, Jr., is an exciting and thorough account of the struggle for democracy in Europe, one that places Marx and Engels at its forefront.” ― International Socialist Review

“Nimtz has set out to change the way we think about Marx and Engels’s place in history by asking not just what they said and wrote, but how this related to what they actually did, and studying this practical side of their work in detail―something which has been surprisingly neglected. It is an original and timely book. Whether or not one accepts the claim that Marx and Engels played the leading role in the ultimately successful struggle for democracy, contrary to the opposite claim of so many ‘marxologists,’ Nimtz has made a very powerful case for it.” ― Colin Leys, coeditor of The Communist Manifesto Now; Socialist Register 1998

“Marx and Engels’s signal contribution to the ‘democratic breakthrough’ in the nineteenth century is massively documented and keenly argued in this book. I was interested in and impressed by the comparative analysis of Tocqueville and Marx-Engels―it is vigorously but lucidly written.” ― Herbert G. Reid, University of Kentucky
