THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO
by Marx & Engels
The Communist Manifesto is the definitive book of our times; composed 169 years ago, the pamphlet reads as if it was written yesterday. It draws its timeless potency from the fact that today, like then, we are faced with a clear choice: either we forge ahead with a better world, or do nothing and perish.
The Communist Manifesto: Marx and Engels’s revolutionary summons to the working class. One of the most important and prescient political theories ever formulated.
Written in 1848, at the behest of the Communist League, this celebrated political manuscript is an enduring analysis of class struggle and the problems of capitalism and its modes of production. A book arguably as influential as the Bible, masterful, inspiring, and as relevant today as ever.
Author and editor Vijay Prashad, extremely familiar with the text and an ardent promoter of the merits of reading The Communist Manifesto as a contemporary call-to-arms, hand-annotates this edition. Full of historical and present day references, awash with comments and notes, this edition demonstrates just how relevant, pressing, and necessary this short indictment and revolutionary pamphlet really is.
