Excerpt

Since the appearance of the first edition of this book, a great deal of material for the history of socialist ideas has come to me from all sides. As the book has won for itself a wide circle of readers mainly by its shortness and conciseness, I can only avail myself of a limited selection of this new matter. It was my endeavour in the first edition to refer the socialist theories in all cases to their first originator and advocate. I am fully aware that this, in my opinion, truly scientific work has wounded the feelings of very influential circles. But to men who, at a time when socialist ideas aroused so little interest, bore in their lives, besides other persecutions, the grief of being unappreciated and forgotten, there is at least due the tardy justice of immortality in the memory of their fellowmen, as the originators of world-moving thoughts.

ANTON MENGER.

VIENNA, May 1891.
