During this year, 1853-54, Marx and Engelscarried on journalistic activity centred upon three major topics of interest- the economic condition of European countries, notably Britain, and the prospects for a new advance of the democratic and proletarian movements, the industrial struggle of the workingclass and the attempt to revive the Chartist movement; the colonial policies of the capitalist powers and the national liberation movements of the oppressed peoles; and problems of international relations, especially the contradictionsamong European powers in the Middle East and the Balkan, which led to the Crimean War.  The Eastern questionis dealt with in an extended series of articles.
