Is ths a collection?
The moment one accepts the notion of 'totalitarianism', one is firmly locked within the liberal-democratic horizon. - Slavoj Žižek
No it's not a collection, just a short book he wrote.
I've never heard of this book. Apparently, it's part of Penguin's "great ideas" series.

Rather than a book, it looks like a collection of articles (maybe for the Tribune?).
Penguin released another anthology of his articles Dispatches for the New York Tribune. You have to wonder if this is a more complete anthology (if the other one was taken from this one) or if one, as you say, something he wrote as a book.
(For those who are interested, here's a pretty neat interview with the editor of this collection)
Classless, if you are recommending it as essential, I'm sure you can tell us more about this, beyond it being short and written by Marx.
"It does not suffice to reject the error; we must overcome it, explain it and outgrow it." - Antonio Labriola
Yeah, sorry probably should have added a bit more earlier.
Anyway, Revolution and War is essential in my opinion as it effectively covers important historical issues from a Marxist perspective such as Revolution in China, British Rule in India, The North American Civil War, The Greek insurrection and various other topics (I'll post a list of all of them at the end of this post). In Revolution and War Marx gives details about various conflicts and there causes and consequences. He also talks about the role of the economy in this issues. It really shows you the global political situation whilst Marx was alive and his opinions. Also it's not a long or hard read so definitely worth picking up a copy.
