PITHY QUOTE FROM Marx and Engels: Collected Works

Open quotes
7. Unprincipled bankruptcy is that of a booby who lets justice intervene and pronounce sentence branding him and stripping him naked instead of doing as so many clever people do, who manage to emerge from this predicament with honour and profit.

Notes

An indispensable reference source for the history, politics, economics, religion and philosophy of the last century and a half. The definitive English edition.

All Russian has been transliterated and appears in a green font. All italicized Russian has been transliterated as if it were not italicized. All transliterated Russian is linked to a popup window in which the user may view the Cyrillic. All Greek appears unaccented using the Symbol font. However all Greek text is linked to a popup window in which the accented Greek may be viewed.



The translation . . . is masterly; not only faultless but immensely readable and displaying a fine ingenuity in making sense of the more abstruse—or merely tougher—Teutonic constructions.

—The London Times


Indispensable to anyone with a serious interest in Marx, Marxism and the 19th Century. It is unlikely that this edition of The Collected Works will ever need to be replaced.

—E. J. Hobsbawm
