Frederick Engles co-wrote the Communist Manifesto with Karl Marx.
He wrote The Origin of the Family shortly after the death of Marx.
His theories have had an impact on human thinking in the areas of political ideology and sociology and anthropology.
This was an important book of the time as it challenged the idea of a 'traditional' monogamous family unit, arguing that it was a relatively recent human construction.
The book is in good order.
