Socialism: Utopian and Scientific is an excellent overview of socialist ideas, written by Marx’s long-time co-thinker Engels. It explains how the motor forces of history, above all the class struggle, created the conditions for socialism, and the ideas which underpin it.


Engels looks at the utopian socialist forerunners and the key tenets of scientific socialism. Covering history, economics, philosophy, science and more, Socialism: Utopian and Scientific is an excellent guide to socialist thinking.

This edition contains a new introduction examining the re­emergence of utopian socialist ideas today. Extensive new footnotes will assist the new reader of Socialism: Utopian and Scientific, making it an essential read for those interested in socialism and Marxism.
