Synopsis

'An astonishing masterpiece ... a political classic ... has an almost biblical force' Eric Hobsbawm The Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels' revolutionary 1848 summons to the working classes, is one of the most influential political theories ever formulated. After four years of collaboration, the authors produced this incisive account of their idea of Communism, in which they envisage a society without classes, private property or a state. They argue that increasing exploitation of industrial workers will eventually lead to a revolution in which capitalism is overthrown. Their vision transformed the world irrevocably, and remains relevant as a depiction of global capitalism today.

Edited with an Introduction by GARETH STEDMAN JONES

The Communist Manifesto
Not the Communist Mannifesto
Don't be fooled like I was. This is not the actual Mannifesto. It's someone's review of it and as such shouldn't be sold under the same name.
