Second edition, first published in 1845, and here published as volume 14 of the Internationale Bibliothek. "In 1842, Engels left for England to work in his father's Manchester firm his father was a textile manufacturer in Westphalia. Already converted by Moses Hess to a belief in 'communism' and the imminence of an English social revolution, he used his two-year stay to study the conditions which would bring it about. From this visit, came two works which were to make an important contribution to the formation of Marxian socialism: 'Outlines of a Critique of Political Economy' (generally called the 'Umrisse') published in 1844 in the short-lived Deutsch-Französischen Jahrbüchern and The Condition of the Working Class in England, published in Leipzig in 1845" (The New Palgrave).
