who would become his lifelong collaborator. Expelled from France in 1845, he
moved to Brussels, where his political orientation matured and he and Engels
made names for themselves through their writings. Marx was invited to join a
secret left-wing group in London, for which he and Engels wrote the Communist
Manifesto (1848). That same year he organized the first Rhineland Democratic
Congress in Germany and opposed the king of Prussia when he dissolved the
Prussian Assembly. Exiled, he moved to London in 1849, where he would live
the rest of his life. For years his family lived in poverty, and two of his children
died. He worked part-time as a European correspondent for the New York
Tribune (1851-62) while writing his major critique of capitalism, Das Kapital (3
vols., 1867-94). He was a leading figure in the First International from 1864 until
the defection of M. Bakunin in 1872. See also communism, dialectical
materialism, Marxism.
