1998 was the 150th anniversary of the first publication of the Communist Manifesto, a book that has had a greater impact on history than any other ever published. To mark the occasion, The Electric Book Company, under its ElecBook imprint, launched Essential Classics in Politics: Marx and Engels, a collection on CD-Rom of 20 of the most important works of these two giants of 19th century thought—including all three volumes of Capital. The CD contains:

Karl MarxThe Communist Manifesto (with F. Engels); Capital, Volumes I, II and III; Marx’s Capital—A Student Edition (edited by C J Arthur); The 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte; The Civil War in France; The Class Struggle in France; Critique of the Gotha Programme; The German Ideology (edited by C J Arthur); Preface to a Critique of Political Economy; Value, Price and Profit.

Frederick Engels: Anti-Dühring; The Condition of the Working Class in England; A History of the Communist League; Ludwig Feuerbach and the End of Classical German Philosophy; The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State; The Part Played by Labour in the Transition from Ape to Man; The Peasant Question in France and Germany; Socialism: Utopian and Scientific.

These are the full text versions, complete and unabridged, published in conjunction with Lawrence & Wishart, International Publishers, New York and Progress Publishers. The text is displayed with all the clarity and typographical richness of a book — no messy computer script. The CD is fully searchable — you can search across all 20 texts simultaneously. It also has thousands of click-on index items that take you straight to the required page. And if you need a paper version you can print out pages or paste text into your word processor.
