    Description
    Information
    Friedrich Engels was a Victorian cotton magnate, a raffish, high-living, fox-hunting gentleman who enjoyed lobster, champagne and women. Yet he was also a political revolutionary, who wrote passionately about the lives of the poor in England and, with Karl Marx, created The Communist Manifesto, inspiring a global movement – and sacrificing his own ambitions to support his friend.

    This hugely enjoyable biography reveals a man of contradiction, conviction and exuberance, whose ideas are now resonating once again.
