The Peasant War in Germany
"This work is a graphic treatment of the first great democratic struggle which heralded the dawn of the modern era. Engels analyzes the social and economic forces which brought about the peasant revolt of 1525 and its role in the Reformation. He portrays vividly the contrasting figures of Thomas Muenzer and Martin Luther, in relation to the revolutionary peasants and to the princes. The book has an enduring theoretical interest, as one of the earliest discussions of the revolutionary potential of the peasantry. Illustrated with drawings and woodcuts of the time."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
