About the book

'The Condition of the Working-Class in England in 1844" is an important work and early writing by Friedrich Engels from the year 1845, in which it represents the social and economic conditions in England at the time of the early industrialization. The book is regarded as a pioneer work of empirical social research and makes a damning indictment of the English bourgeoisie, whose "unrestrained greed for profit" is responsible for the impoverishment of the workers - up to "social murder".

The publication is a standard work of industrial and urban sociology and is described by UNESCO as a "masterpiece of ecological analysis".
