The Civil War in France

Author : Marx, Karl, Engels, Friedrich


2014 Reprint of 1934 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. “The Civil War in France” was a pamphlet written by Karl Marx as an official statement of the General Council of the International on the character and significance of the struggle of the Parisian Communards in the French Civil War of 1871. In 1891, on the 20th anniversary of the Paris Commune, Engels put together a new edition of the work. He wrote an introduction to this edition, emphasizing the historical significance of the experience of the Paris Commune, and its theoretical generalization by Marx in “The Civil War in France,” and also providing additional information on the activities of the Communards from among the Blanquists and Proudhonists. Engels also decided to include earlier material by Marx made for the International – in this way providing additional historical background to the Commune from Marx’s account of the Franco-Prussian War. For Marx, the history of the Paris Commune caused him to reassess the significance of some of his own earlier writings.
