This collection of essays offers a critical reappraisal of Friederich Engels, a pivotal figure of the classical European labour movement. It deals with Engels "after" Marx in several senses. Chronologically and thematically, the authors examine the main aspects of Engel's social thought after the end of his 40-year intellectual relationship with Marx. Politically, the collection attempts to make sense of Engels's legacy in the aftermath of the 1989-1991 revolutions in Europe. The essays search for new readings of Engels's texts. In the spirit of a genuinely "critical" theory, the authors pursue Engels's errors and omissions, uncover his rhetorical manoeuvres, and point to insights and conclusions in his thought that appear to have withstood the test of time. The guiding questions for the book are: what is the nature of Engels's role as an independent socialist thinker after Marx's death in 1883? What is the theoretical significance and the historical impact of his wide-ranging contributions to philosophy, science, political economy, history and socialist politics? And what is Engel's intellectual and political legacy for the era "after Marx"?

Review:

"Engels After Marx is an impressive work of scholarship. It brings Engels out from under the shadow of Marx and treats him as a thinker and activist in his own right. The host of perspectives offered in this volume examines the range of Engels's influence, his achievements, his mistakes, and his legacy for progressive theory and practice. The editors have indeed made a genuine contribution to our understanding of a crucial figure in the history of modernity."--Stephen Eric Bronner, Rutgers University Engels After Marx is an impressive work of scholarship.
