Frederick Engels – pamphlets, books and commentaries

Virtually everything that has been published by Frederick Engels is included in the 50 volume Collected Works of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels.

However, his contribution to the world revolutionary movement has meant that many of his most significant works have been produced as individual pamphlets/books. The intention is to post as many of those as possible on this page.

Engels spent many years of the 19th century in Manchester – and a few years ago returned to stand proudly in a public square.

The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin – An investigation by ‘Monitor’, (London, Allan Wingate, 1958), 144 pages. This is a strange one. I assume, but am not definite, that this was a publication of the Christian Science Monitor organisation. It’s certainly not a ‘pro-Stalin’ nor pro-Soviet approach towards the death of JV Stalin. However, the conclusion that Stalin was almost certainly murdered is interesting. Or one of the earlier ‘conspiracy theories’?

VI Lenin – Collected Works – Volumes 1 – 47

On this page you will find the Collected Works of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. The intention is, eventually, to provide full contents for each volume posted. As it stands at the moment they are only available for the first fifteen volumes – contents for later volumes will appear gradually over a period of time.

However all of the 45 volumes of Lenin’s Collected Works will be available in pdf format to download from the start. There are two further volumes, an Index of Works and Names and another a Subject Index – also downloadable.

These volumes were made available by the comrades at From Marx to Mao, to whom we give our thanks. They have other material on their website – some of which is available here but others (especially individual pamphlets of the great Marxist-Leninists) in html format are not.

Also here you can find the writings of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, JV Stalin, Mao Tse-tung, Enver Hoxha, Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un.
