The Condition of the Working Class in England was written during Engels' stay in Manchester from 1842-44, compiled from his own observations and detailed contemporary reports. The fluency of his writing, the personal nature of his insights, and his talent for mordant satire combine to make this account of the life of the victims of early industrial change in the a classic historical study.
