This book by David Riazanov is one of the best introductions to the lives and work of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels. It includes an introduction written by Dirk Struik for the edition published by Monthly Review Press in 1973. Struik was a well-known Mathematician as well as an authority on this subject and his notes added to the book are helpful in placing the facts in the right context.
The footnotes marked with numbers were added by D. Riazanov in the original edition and those marked with an asterisk are by Prof. Struik. The notes by Struik were at the end of the book in the 1973 edition which has been placed as footnotes for convenience of the reader.
The book has not been available in India before and it is out of print even in the USA for over two decades. We hope this volume will be useful for serious readers of Marxism as well as those who want to know about the life and work of these two great men who have changed the course of human.
In these reminiscences we see Marx and Engels not only as thinkers of genius and outstanding revolutionaries; we see them as human beings, personifications of the most beautiful and most noble human qualities: crystal-clear moral purity, modesty, simplicity and truthfulness, unbending moral endurance and unconquerable optimism, the roots of which lay in their profound understanding of the objective laws of historical development and their unshakable faith in the inevitable dawn of a new era in the history of humanity, the era of communism.
