-The '''lumpenproletariat''' ([[German language|German]] ''Lumpenproletariat'', "rabble-proletariat"; "raggedy proletariat") is a term originally defined by [[Karl Marx]] and [[Friedrich Engels]] in ''[[The German Ideology]]'' ([[1845]]), their famous second joint work, and later expounded upon in subsequent works by Marx. In Marx's ''[[The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon]]'' ([[1852]]), the term refers to the 'refuse of all classes,' including 'swindlers, [[confidence trick|confidence tricksters]], [[brothel|brothel-keepers]], [[Rag and bone man|rag-and-bone merchants]], [[organ grinder|organ-grinders]], [[Begging|beggars]], and other flotsam of society.'+

-In the ''Eighteenth Brumaire'', Marx and Engels describe the ''lumpenproletariat'' as a 'class fraction' that constituted the political power base for [[Napoleon III of France|Louis Bonaparte]] of France in [[1848]]. In this sense, Marx argued that in the particular historical events leading up to Louis Bonaparte's coup in late [[1851]], the [[proletariat]] and [[bourgeoisie]] were productive and progressive, advancing the historical process by developing society's [[labor power]] and its capabilities, whereas the 'lumpenproletariat' was unproductive and regressive.+
