The Revolutions of 1848: Political Writings Volume 1


Manufacturer: Verso Books

Product Information

"Marx and Engels had sketched out the principles of scientific communism by 1846. Yet it was from his intense involvement in the abortive German Revolution of 1848 that Marx developed a depth of practical understanding he would draw on in Capital and throughout his later career. 

This volume includes his great call to arms The Communist Manifesto—but also shows how tactical alliances with the bourgeoisie failed, after which Marx became firmly committed to independent workers’ organizations and the ideal of “permanent revolution.” The articles offer trenchant analyses of events in France, Poland, Prague, Berlin and Vienna, while speeches set out changing communist tactics."

First volume in Verso's three part set of writing by Karl Marx, published by Verso Books, 2010. Now a print on demand title so the price has jumped.

Foreword by Tariq Ali, introduction by David Fernbach.
