A political classic of 1848. However, this is the 1888 edition, edited by Engels.
I've added some pictures and a TOC, plus some reformatting.

'The history of all hitherto existing societies is the history of class struggles.'
Eventually, as industrial society develops, capital becomes more concentrated and two opposing classes arise: the proletariat and the bourgeoisie. Working men of all countries should unite and break their chains.

I'm uploading a second version. This has the titles in Proper case. Also I have removed empty lines between paragraphs.

Excellent stuff - one of the turning points of political philosophy. Thanks for posting.

A minor point, Patricia - would you mind using our standard thread naming convention, please, of:

author: title. version. date

At the moment you're using:

author, 'title', version. date

It's only a minor point, but if we all stick to the same conventions it makes the index work a lot better. I've edited this thread's title to follow the conventional layout. If you could use the same format for future uploads, I'd appreciate it.

Sorry, Harry.
Will do.

Thank you! No big deal, but it does make life easier if we're all "singing from the same hymn-sheet" .

This is a great edition. Any chance it can be re-formatted so the title does not appear in all CAPS?

I might get round to it sometime.
