From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Revolution and Counter-Revolution in Germany is a book by Friedrich Engels, with contributions by Karl Marx.

It is an account of what happened in Germany from 1848 - both middle-class and working-class aspirations, along with the idea of German unification. Events in Austria and Prussia are discussed, along with the role of the Poles and 'Tshhechs' and Panslavism, which Engels was against.

Also discussed are the Cologne Communist Trial, in which the defendants were acquitted after some of the evidence was shown to have been crudely forged. An appendix gives a history of the Communist League, which existed well before Marx and Engels joined it.
