Condition of the Working-Class in England in 1844

Friedrich ENGELS (1820 - 1895), translated by Florence KELLEY (1859 - 1932)

This is Engels' first book (since considered a classic account of England's working class in the industrial age), which argues that workers paid a heavy price for the industrial revolution that swept the country. Engels wrote the piece while staying in Manchester from 1842 to 1844, based on th bohis observations and several contemporary reports conducted over the period. (Summary by Cathy Barratt)
