Author: Frederick Engels

ISBN: 978-1-898231-42-4

Written in 1877 during the growth of the unskilled workers' trade unions.

As Engels says: 'The English working class is moving … it moves like all things in England, with a slow and measured step, with hesitation here, with more or less unfruitful, tentative attempts there … and that, if a step in advance is once gained in England, it is, as a rule, never lost afterwards.'

For the working class to achieve universal emancipation the comprehension of scientific socialism is essential.
