A masterpiece of committed reporting and an impassioned call to arms, this book was written when Engels (1820-95) was only 24. It was the industrial transformation of the early 19th century that created the English proletariat; it was their appalling suffering that led to the emergence, despite implacable opposition, of the early labour movements. Engels paints an unforgettable picture of daily life in the new industrial towns and for the miners and agricultural workers
