"A brilliant, astute, and humane masterpiece"

Friedrich Engels, der Mann der den Marxismus erfand.

Whoever says Marx must also say Engels. Marxism cannot be thought without Engels. Yet he was usually in the shadow of his friend. In his great biography Tristan Hunt succeeds convincingly in showing Friedrich Engels as an independent thinker whose work was not inferior to that of Marx, but whose life was far more exciting.

Der Flug des Falken

The rebellious youth of Friedrich Engels

Frederick could have taken over his father's factory, could have become a star in bourgeois cultural life with his literary and philosophical talents. But he took a different path. Driven by his great sense of justice, he rebels against the intellectual paternalism of faith. He does not spare himself in this process, he persistently and critically examines his own thoughts and actions. In this way he sets out on a new world view, which forms a scientific foundation for the liberation of mankind. The image of the falcon appears in his memory. His chest widens. The flight should go high up! To overlook the world, to conquer darkness and confusion, to fathom the secret of creation - that was what he wanted.

A novel (not only) for young people.

Friedrich Engels, die Bremer Jahre 1838 bis 1841

From freedom-loving poet to important publicist

Friedrich Engels (1820-1895) achieved world fame as a politician, publicist, military theorist and philosopher in tandem with Karl Marx. The cornerstone of this remarkable career was laid by the son of a Barmer entrepreneur during his training period in Bremen from 1838 to 1841, where the industrious letter writer and author of literary and journalistic works became a major publicist of the Vormärz, as evidenced by his involvement in some of the important journals of the time. This book sheds light on Engels' enormous intellectual and ideological development and, by opening up new sources, expands the state of research achieved to date. Contemporary pictures and documents illustrate the conditions found by the alert and extremely intelligent hotspur in the Hanseatic city, which had much to offer him. The documentary section includes, for the first time in chronological order, all of Engels' letters, drawings, articles and literary works that can be proven to have been written in Bremen: critical, instructive and humorous testimonies to a pre-revolutionary period, an exceptional personality and a special city.

Auf den Barrikaden

Friedrich Engels und die "gescheiterte Revolution" von 1848/49

The revolution of 1848/49 was repeatedly and gladly described as a bulky topic. Nevertheless, contemporaries and later commentators seemed to agree for a long time when they spoke of a failed bourgeois revolution. In any case, the narrative of failure was hardly suitable for triggering any significant contradiction. The Barmer factory owner's son Friedrich Engels, who stood on the barricades himself in Elberfeld in the May days of the great year 1849 and fought with the revolutionaries for a few days for democracy and the recognition of the Empire`s constitution, which had been passed shortly before. The story of these exciting days is told here once again and put in relation to the processes on the central action levels of the revolution of 1848/49.
