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."

About the author (2007)

Karl Heinrich Marx, one of the fathers of communism, was born on May 5, 1818 in Trier, Germany. He was educated at a variety of German colleges, including the University of Jena. He was an editor of socialist periodicals and a key figure in the Working Man's Association. Marx co-wrote his best-known work, "The Communist Manifesto" (1848), with his friend, Friedrich Engels. Marx's most important work, however, may be "Das Kapital" (1867), an analysis of the economics of capitalism. He died on March 14, 1883 in London, England.
