The Communist Manifesto

Book - 1998

Rate this:
Critically and textually up-to-date, this new edition of the classic translation (Samuel Moore, 1888) features an introduction and notes by the eminent Marx scholar David McLellan, prefaces written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels subsequent to the original 1848 publication, and corrections of errors made in earlier versions. Regarded as one of the most influential political tracts ever written, The Communist Manifesto serves as the foundation document of the Marxist movement. This summary of the Marxist vision is an incisive account of the world-view Marx and Engels had evolved during their hectic intellectual and political collaboration of the previous few years.

I didn't read the extra commentary that this book comes with, and I will admit a lot of the actual writing went over my head. The verbiage was pretty dense but the manifesto was pretty short which helped. I'm not super passionate on this subject which might explain why I probably missed some of the key points of the book, but the whole proletariat versus bourgeoisie cycle was interesting, as was the concept of disestablishing it to break the destructiveness of it.
