pp. xv-xxxiii

The seventh volume of the Collected Works of Karl Marx* and Frederick Engels covers the period from March to November 1848. It is the first of three volumes (Vols. 7-9) containing their writings during the revolutionary years 1848 and 1849. The series of revolutions of this period arose primarily from the crisis of feudalism and absolutism, which still prevailed in a considerable part of Europe. Emerging bourgeois society needed to rid itself of feudal relics and abolish such legacies of the feudal age as the political dismemberment...

Originally the date of publication of the Neue Rheinische Zeitung was to be the first of July, and arrangements with correspondents etc. were made with that date in view. But since the renewed insolence of the reactionaries foreshadows the enactment of German September Lawsa in the near future, we have decided to make use of every available day and to publish the paper as from June the...

Cologne, June 30. If one reads the following passages from the London Telegraph and compares them to the babble about the Paris June revolution that emanates from the German liberals, especially Herr Brüggemann, Herr Dumont and Herr Wolfers, one will have to admit that the English bourgeois, apart from many other distinctions, surpass the German philistines in at least this regard: although they...

This great, this scholarly, this veracious proposition can be found in Herr Wolfers' leading article in the always well-informed Kölnische Zeitung. It is indeed strange. England has the most numerous, the most concentrated, the most classic proletariat, a proletariat which every five or six years is decimated by the crushing misery of a commercial crisis, by hunger and typhus; a proletariat which for half its life is redundant to industry and unemployed. One man in every ten in England is a pauper...

The armistice263 concluded as the result of Charles Albert's, treachery will expire in about three weeks (on September 21). France and Britain have offered to act as mediators. The Spectateur républicain, Cavaignac's paper, writes that Austria has not yet stated whether she will accept or decline the offer. France's dictator is getting annoyed over the discourtesy of the Austrians and threatens armed intervention...

Cologne, October 11. In its first issue (for June 1) the Neue Rheinische Zeitung wrote of a revolution (on May 25) in Vienna. Today, when we resume publication for the first time after the break caused by the declaration of a state of siege in Cologne, we bring news of the much more important Viennese revolution of October 6 and 7. Detailed reports on the events in Vienna compel us today to omit all analytical...

In this appeal lack of revolutionary energy is replaced by sermonising, wailing and ranting324 behind which hides the most decided lack of thought and passion. Just a few samples! The appeal expected of the Vienna and Berlin March revolutions "the realisation of the unity and freedom" of the German people "at one blow". In other...
