There is an old saying in France (a French prosecutor had once said it): A Paris of 1871, in that Paris everyone was guilty; you are guilty if you don't have money to get out.

To sum up my review, I would say- it is the kind of text, which is produced rarely in history.

مؤامرة الطبقة الحاكمة لقمع الثورة عن طريق الحرب الاهليه تحت رعاية الغازى الاجنبى

كارل ماركس كان هيخليني اتطرد من البيت :D

فى كتاب "الحرب الاهليه على فرنسا" يقدم كارل ماركس دراسة شامله عن كومونة باريس , التى نشأت بعد هزيمة جيش الامبراطورية الثانيه و توقيع معاهدة فرساى حيث تكونت حكومة الدفاع الوطنى التى لم تجد بدا من من تسليح العمال الباريسيين لمواجهة الاحتلال ثم ادى خضوع هذه الحكومة للغزاه و خيانتهم للفرنسيين الى استقلال العمال الباريسيين و تكوين الكومونة فى باريس و بدء اتخاذ قرارات اصلاحيه ثورية

This is history as it should be- engaged yet well-referenced. His description of the policies established by the Commune are an excellent guide to what the first stages of a genuine workers' state will look like. Likewise, his condemnation of the hypocrisy of the bourgeoisie is decisive:

"The civilization and justice of bourgeois order comes out in its lurid light whenever the slaves and drudges of that order rise against their masters. Then this civilization and justice stand forth as undisguis

really cool and will check again when studying the civil war. Specially enthusiastic when it talks directly about the commune, but got me bored af from start to finish

A fascinating, and informative history of the context that gave rise to the Paris Commune, and general insight into its workings. If by any chance you liked the idea of the Paris Commune, then I highly recommend you read Pyotr Kropotkin's The Conquest of Bread which explores the failings of the Paris Commune, and ways to conquer them.

Most importantly, this book reveals Karl Marx's and Friedrich Engels's libertarian conception of socialism. Evidenced by Engel's clarification of the most (in my op

Engels comments on the Paris Commune in the preface, “Of late, the Social-Democratic philistine has once more been filled with wholesome terror at the words: Dictatorship of the proletariat. Well and good, gentlemen, do you want to know what this dictatorship looks like? Look at the Paris Commune. That was the Dictatorship of the proletariat.” [p. 22]

It is interesting to see how Marxists and Anarchists debated and attempted to interpret the Commune according to their own interests. I think it w

It was okay. Lots of ranting about the government of France. I don't know that much about the history of France outside of the broad timeline high points (Napoleon, French-Indian war, they hate Britain, lots of WWI & WWII were fought on their territory, and currently they have issues with the Muslim minority), so I'm not that familiar with the Paris Commune from a historical standpoint, and the book makes me want to learn more, as I think knowledge of the overall world setting at that time w ...more

While I have a hard time giving this book as much as three stars I did think it was quite a bit better than the Communist Manifesto, which I gave two stars to. The things I liked about this book were the expressions of propaganda so flagrantly used by Marx to express one of the more unique periods in French history and the way that he wrote rather clearly compared with some of his other more murky papers on political theory. For me, this 'book' was a great study in the application of political s ...more

I got a lovely old edition of this from the University Library. It has a slightly grudging introduction by Engels and appendices of resolutions by the General Council of the International Working Men's Association. Most interestingly, there is a speech given by Lenin in 1908 on lessons from the Commune, which brings out the point that the initial French Revolution has begun a tide of European nationalism, but by the turn of the 20th century patriotic feeling had become damaging to the revolution ...more

A guerra civil em França parte do pressuposto que através do método de analisar a realidade social existente, se conseguiria antecipar as lutas do antagonismos de classes, ou fracções de classes. Situado numa posição histórica do desenvolvimento do modo de produção do capitalismo numa época embrionária da sociedade das mercadorias. Em 1848,a nação francesa sobre o comando de Louis Bonaparte, situa-se se queremos em termos da ciências burguesas, numa crise estrutural cíclica,embora relembrando o ...more

Shelves: francia
Zizek cita en Sobre la Violencia Pág.233 un párrafo de la introducción de Engels en referencia a la Comuna de Paris como la Dictadura del Proletariado (extrañamente Zizek comete el error de fechar la insurrección en 1891, y no en 1871 cuando realmente ocurrió. Ignoro si el error persiste en el original inglés).
Shatha Al-Sheikh
Marx's writings about The Civil War in France present a detailed historical account of the Parisian events and the short lived reign of the Paris Commune and its majestic history -when working people rose up and took control of Paris and established the best democratic system the world has ever known, a system that has given us a glimpse of what socialism would really look like- and a forceful polemic against the barbarity and brutality of the capitalist system and those who stand in for it.

"Working men’s Paris, with its Commune, will be forever celebrated as the glorious harbinger of a new society. Its martyrs are enshrined in the great heart of the working class. Its exterminators history has already nailed to that eternal pillory from which all the prayers of their priest will not avail to redeem them."

لو كنت قريت الكتاب فى وقت قبل كده مكنتش هقتنع بافكار كتير موجودة فيه ، الطبقة صاحبة المصالح مستعدة للتحالف مع العدو عشان مصالحها فقط و شعارات الوطنية و الانسانية بتختفى فى الوقت ده االمجازر اللى ارتكبت فى فرنسا كانت بشعة و الدافع الفعلي ليها هو الصراع الطبقي فعلاً

An excellent look into one of those lesser covered (at least here in the US) pieces of history. The French had just been soundly defeated by the Prussians and the proletariat/citizens of Paris went into revolt. The resulting Paris Commune is looked upon either as a glorious event or with great disdain, depending on your view point. Marx and the others gathered in this collection give their views as to the events of the day. It is quite powerful and well worth the read.
Hilarious in classic Marxist overblown style. I thought he was a bit harsh on poor Thiers, having a go at him for being short more often than he criticised his politics. 'Monstrous gnome' is a bit much. Although it was pretty funny.
Yep, basically, I'm not a Marxist, so I don't appreciate this in the spirit it was intended. It was fairly interesting as a historical document, though.

In which Marx reviews the Paris Commune, and how and whether it was Marxist - and all as it happens. The poor-quality translation - though to be fair, I have not read it in the original German, it might have been badly written from the start - detracts from his explanation of the issues involved.

This was one resource for my undergraduate paper entitled "An Introduction to the Communist/Anarchist Debate"... I found it wonderfully useful especially because thinkers from all over the political spectrum wrote about it including Engels, Bakunin and Lenin.

Marx was fundamentally writing as an outsider. Much hand wringing is performed as to the immorality of the French Bourgeois however the book is sadly largely without insight, theoretical or practical.
Donna Davis
The backbone of the whole volume is The Communist Manifesto. I wonder how anyone could see this coming as far back as 1848, when the Industrial Rev. was just beginning! Remarkable.

In 1818, Karl Marx, descended from a long line of rabbis, was born in Prussian Rhineland. Marx's' father converted to Protestantism shortly before Karl's birth. Educated at the Universities of Bonn, Jena, and Berlin, Marx founded the Socialist newspaper Vorwarts in 1844 in Paris. After being expelled from France at the urging of the Prussian government, which "banished" Marx in
