Friedrich Engels' first major work, The Condition of the Working Class in England in 1844, has long been considered a social, political, and economic classic. In this book, Steven Marcus applies himself to the study of Engels' book and the conditions that combined to produce it. Marcus studies the city of Manchester, center of the first Industrial Revolution; the period between 1835 and 1850 when the city and its inhabitants experienced the first great crisis of industrial capitalism; and Engels himself. Touching upon several disciplines, Engels, Manchester, and the Working Class offers a fascinating study of nineteenth-century English literature and cultural life.
