A critique of the utopian socialists, such as Fourier and Owen, providing an explanation of the socialist framework for understanding capitalism, and an outline of the progression of social and economic development from the perspective of historical materialism.

“To make man the master of his own form of social organization—to make him free—is the historical mission of the modern proletariat,” writes Engels. Here socialism is placed on a scientific foundation, the product of the lawful operations of capitalism itself and the struggles of the working class. Introduction by George Novack, notes, index.
