The Marx/Engels Collected Works is the largest collection of translations of the complete works of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels covering the period 1835-1895. The 50 volumes contain all the written works of Marx and Engels including formerly unpublished manuscripts and letters. The volumes are organised into three groups: (1) philosophical, historical, political, economic and other works, in chronological order; (2) Marx’s Capital with his preliminary versions and works directly connected with it, particularly the Economic Manuscripts of 1857-58, better known under the editorial heading Grundisse der Kritik der Politischen Okonomie ; (3) the letters of Marx and Engels which are extremely rich in theoretical content and provide an indispensable source for the study of the biographies of Marx and Engels. This digital collection gives scholars access to the complete oeuvre in a fully searchable format.
Volume 10 covers the period between the autumn of 1849 and the summer of 1851. During this period Marx and Engels devoted themselves mainly to drawing lessons from the European revolutions of 1848-49, studying the laws of the class struggle and working out tactics and strategy for the working class in new conditions.
Alongside such major works as The Class Struggles in France, 1848 to 1850 by Marx and The Peasant War in Germany by Engels, the volume also contains works (published in English for the first time) such as an article by Marx The Campaign for the German Imperial Constitution and Reflections produced when he resumed his thematic study of political economy.
The appendices include documents relating to the activity of Marx and Engels in reorganising and consolidating the League of Communists, and their struggle against sectarianism in the working-class movement.
