clear prose about complex ideas

After trying a few other German authors in my recent endeavor to improve reading skills to the educated adult level, I tried this book by Engels and was surprised to find its prose quite clear despite conveying complex socio-political descriptions. This is not the norm for German writers, in my limited experience. It is interesting that this book was written as a series of articles for an English-language newspaper in New York City. I have no idea whether this ultimate destination may have promoted a simpler style to ensure accurate translation. My only other experience with F Engels is an English translation of Origin of the family, private property and the state, a fascinating book read more than 40 years ago.
