Karl Marx's Theory of Revolution, Vol. V: War and Revolution
by Hal Draper and Ernest Haberkern
* * * * *
Volume 5 covers Marx and Engels and their writings on European wars and revolutions in their journalism and correspondence. Chapters 6 and 7 deal specifically with attempts by Engels to develop transitional demands against expanding war budgets in Germany and France. Engels wanted these transitional demands to thwart rightward shifts in the German and French sections of the Second International under growing pressure of chauvinist bourgeois public opinion in these countries.
