The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte
The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte is a publication written by Karl Marx. Demonstrating his abilities as a social and political historian, Marx treats actual historical events leading up to Louis Bonaparte's coup d'etat to his own materialist conception of history. The interpretation in this book by Marx of Bonaparte's rise and fall has proved to be very popular among scholars studying the nature and meaning of fascism. The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte is highly recommended for those interested in reading about fascism and those who are interested in the major works of Karl Marx."
