The 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte by Karl Marx

This historical work provides a detailed analysis of the coup d'etat that brought Louis Bonaparte to power in France in 1851. The author examines the social and political dynamics that allowed Bonaparte to seize control, including the role of the bourgeoisie and the proletariat. He presents a critique of the event itself and its implications for the class struggle, suggesting that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce.
