To continue marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Friedrich Engels, we are reposting an introduction (2018) by Tony Saunois to Engels’ classic, ‘Socialism: Utopian and Scientific’.


This pamphlet should be read and studied by socialists, worker-activists and young people interested in socialist ideas, as it greatly adds to our understanding of the roots of socialism and the tasks the working class need to conquer to fundamentally change society. This short pamphlet by Friedrich Engels, is, along with the Communist Manifesto, one of the best and most significant introductions to Marxism.
