183) Obras de Marx e Engels, em ingles

Marx-Engels Collected Works

This is the listing of the Marx/Engels Collected Works (MECW), as compiled and printed by Progress Publishers of the Soviet Union in collaboration with Lawrence & Wishart (London) and International Publishers (New York), starting in 1975 and completed in 2005. Students and scholars should be aware that we have only transcribed most of the first 10 volumes, up to 1851 plus occasional pieces from elsewhere of the Marx Engels Collected Works and that there are 50 volumes in all. This compilation is the most complete publication of the works of Marx/Engels in English ever undertaken, and it was a massive publishing effort to gather and translate these resources into English. The MECW has by far the best translations in any language, better than the Russian and at the moment more complete that the German originals or those in any other language including the Russian. Our MECW version however contains typographical errors and omissions caused by the transcription by different hands and machines while the many other pieces that we have, whether before or after 1851, are much less reliable and the texts are sometimes unclear. The volume of manuscripts from Marx and Engels continues to grow, beyond the selection available in the MECW, and readers interested in following the progress of this work can visit The Institute of Social History in Amsterdam.

The majority of works published by the MIA are not the same translation used by Progress Publishers.

Any students or researchers who are consulting Marx/Engels should certainly use the MECW published by Lawrence and Wishart, or International Publishers and get their College Libraries to order it. Email Service department for enquiries. Details of prices from these firms. There is an American firm - Intelex which has digitised the MECW and, again, people may want their colleges or libraries to order that. The Intelex version is particularly useful for scholars trying to find quotes for references but is not designed for general perusal or reading. The text is stored as a database as opposed to HTML or PDF and runs only over a college network of licensed computers and not the internet. You can buy a CD of the MECW from Intelex for US$1,000.
