Book made in the DDR, 1978, by Dietz Verlag Berlin publisher. Marx-Engels Werke, vol.8. The title of the book reads:”Marx-Engels Works”.
The Marx-Engels-Werke (MEW, also known as the Blue Volumes) is a popular and much-cited study edition of the works of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. It is about 44 volumes (in 46 books), which from 1956 by the Institute for Marxism-Leninism at the Central Committee of the SED (Vol. 1-42), by the Institute for the History of the Labor Movement (Vol. 43), and by the Rosa-Luxemburg-Foundation (Vol. 44) were published by Dietz Verlag in Berlin. With the 1,700 writings and 4,170 letters printed in the 44 volumes of the MEW, the edition remains the most comprehensive edition of the literary legacy of Marx and Engels.
Its high circulation and widespread distribution is based not least on the fact that approx. 60% of the texts edited in the MEW are contained in the original German wording, which has made the edition a popular international basis for translations and research work.
The output can be divided into three or four areas: Vol. 1-22 works and writings, Vol. 23-26.3 economic writings, Vol. 27-39 letters, Vol. 40-44 are supplements.
