The Condition of the Working Class in England (Oxf&hellip by Friedrich Engels

I must say upfront I detest Marxist-Leninism in its 20th century form and the post-modern left with their support for terrorism, Islamism , Jew/Israel-hatred, dictatorship and anti-white racism. Though I am a democratic socialist in the tradition of
Aneurin Bevan and Harold Wilson . But this book as a work of history for anyone studying the circumstances of the working class in Britain at the time this is indispensable

Bond must battle Bulgarian and Soviet gunmen, and the agents of SPECTRE, such as the well built killer, Red Grant (Robert Shaw), and a… Read more
