Sounds very much like Terrell Carver, Marx and Engels: The Intellectual
Relationship (Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 1984).  As I recall
when I read it some years ago, Carver makes a pretty cogent argument against
Engels -- something like Engels was not as bad a positivist as Kautsky but
was not the dialectician that Marx was.  Now that you mention it, I think
I'll go back and take a look.
