Marx & Engels Collected Works

The Marx/Engels Collected Works is the largest collection of translations into English 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 The 50 volumes contain all the written works of Marx and Engels including formerly unpublished manuscripts and letters.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 (Vols 1-27); (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 (Vols 28-37); (3) the letters of Marx and Engels (Vols 38-50), which are extremely rich in theoretical content and provide an indispensable source for the study of the biographies of Marx and Engels.The chronological volumes include works such as The Communist Manifesto, The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte and The Peasant War in Germany.

‘…indispensable to anyone with a serious interest in Marx, Marxism and the 19th century…it is unlikely that this edition of the Collected Works will ever need to be replaced.’

EJ Hobsbawm, New Society

‘The translation…is masterly; not only faultless but immensely readable and displaying a fine ingenuity in making sense of the more abstruse – or merely tougher – Teutonic constructions.’
