We know it’s been some time since we released new books in
English, as we’ve been working hard on developing our different language
sections. Thank you for your patience! We’re happy to add two important
books to our Foundations Collection:
Woman and Socialism
by August Bebel was a foundational text for Engels when he wrote Origin
of the Family, arguably history’s proletarian feminist book. After
reading Engels’ Origin,
Bebel reconsidered some of his positions and analysis, eventually
revising his text in a new edition. Their work and the progression of it
is a worthy example of the importance of scientific, undogmatic
approaches to philosophy and theory.
The German Ideology
by Marx and Engels is a collection of manuscripts dealing with the
materialist conception of history through a criticism of German idealist
and metaphysical materialist philosophy from the 1830s and 40s. The
document was first published in the Soviet Union during the 1930s and
has since been considered one of Marx and Engels’ great classics.
This July we managed to release a total of 10 (!) new books
with the help of over a dozen comrades all over the world. This growing
team of multilingual comrades is making the Foreign Languages part of
FLP become a reality. We continue to be amazed and heartened by the
ongoing support we receive from everyone who works to assist this small
press is spreading these relevant, insightful works.
