Über das eBook

This book about Napoleon Bonaparte's coup d'etat of 1851 in France allows Marx to explain why he thinks the earlier French Revolution of 1848, gave Napoleon the wings to achieve his triumph. This event, which occurred on 8th-9th November 1851, is often regarded as the end of the Revolution and the one that allowed Napoleon to establish his power over France. Karl Marx gives his particular views on this event and on Napoleon.

Über den Autor

Karl Marx (1818–1883) was a revolutionary thinker whose works have had an incalculable influence on the landscape of social science and political theory. Trained as a philosopher, Marx turned his attention to social and economic issues, analyzing the complexities of capitalism and class struggle. His ideas were critical in shaping the foundations of modern sociology, economics, and political thought. Together with Friedrich Engels, Marx authored 'The Communist Manifesto' (1848), a seminal text that continues to serve as a rallying cry for revolutionary movements worldwide. His magnum opus, 'Das Kapital,' remains one of the most important treatises on capitalist economies, dissecting the mechanics of capitalist society and the theory of surplus value. In 'The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon' (1852), Marx delves into the intricacies of French society and politics post-1848 Revolution, providing insights into the class struggles of his times and revolutionary potential within the society. His writing carries a sharp, analytical edge, steeped in the Hegelian dialectic method, and a commitment to understanding the material conditions that shape human affairs. Marx's influence extends well beyond his lifetime, pervading numerous disciplines and sparking countless intellectual and political movements.
