  • "The Communist Manifesto is a summary of the whole Marxist vision of history and is the foundation document of the Marxist movement. The Manifesto is a condensed account of the world-view Marx and Engels had evolved during their intellectual and political involvement of the previous few years."
  • "In 1847, while in Brussels, the German Communist League asked Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx to draft a pamphlet on the principles of communism. It was published in 1848 under the title Manifesto of the Communist Party, and in it, Marx and Engels discuss the basic communist theories on society, economics, class struggles and politics. The Communist Manifesto was published at a time when revolutions were spreading throughout Europe, and the work was met with a mixture of praise and criticism. While the authors were blamed as scapegoats by authorities in the wake of social unrest, others were persuaded by the Communist League's principles. The Communist Manifesto remains one of the most influential works in history, and has profoundly impacted political landscapes across all continents.

  • ""A spectre is haunting Europe - the spectre of Communism." So begins one of history's most important documents, a work of such magnitude that it has forever changed not only the scope of world politics, but indeed the course of human civilization. The Communist Manifesto was written in Friedrich Engels's clear, striking prose and declared the earth-shaking ideas of Karl Marx. Upon publication in 1848, it quickly became the credo of the poor and oppressed who longed for a society "in which the free development of each is the condition for the free development of all." The Communist Manifesto contains the seeds of Marx's more comprehensive philosophy, which continues to inspire influential economic, political, social, and literary theories. But the Manifesto is most valuable as an historical document, one that led to the greatest political upheaveals of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and to the establishment of the Communist governments that until recently ruled half the globe. This Bantam Classic edition of The Communist Manifesto includes Marx and Engels's historic 1872 and 1882 prefaces, and Engels's notes and prefaces to the 1883 and 1888 editions.

  • ""Karl Marx's 1848 text is reframed in this revised Norton Critical Edition in the context of twenty-first-century theoretical debates, capitalist globalization, the information technology revolution, and contemporary struggles up to and including the 2011 "Arab Spring." Simultaneously extolled in its day as truth incarnate and the inspiration for a life-and-death struggle for humankind's liberation and condemned as the vilest of propaganda on behalf of despotism, the Communist Manifesto continues to be the most potent literary symbol of the struggle over the form and content of freedom. This revised Norton Critical Edition provides students with the best documentation and scholarship with which to appreciate the Communist Manifesto's complexities, context, and legacy of controversy. The Second Edition interprets the Manifesto in relation to the dominance of globalized financial capital, socialist feminist critique, postmodernism, and the fragmentation/transformation of the global working class in the twenty-first century. The volume includes a carefully annotated text of the Communist Manifesto, the editor's historical and philosophical introduction, and a chronology of historical events surrounding publication of the Manifesto. Fifteen seminal interpretations--eight of them new to the Second Edition--have been collected. New contributions include Lucien Laurat on the Manifesto's sociological standpoint as adapted to the modernization of the mid-twentieth century; Wendy Lynne Lee's assessment of the Manifesto's key concepts, metaphors, and arguments from a radical-feminist perspective; the article that served as the basis for Empire, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri's important postmodernist adaptation of the Manifesto for twenty-first century conditions; and noteworthy responses to Hardt and Negri's arguments by Slavoj Zizek and by Taki Fotopoulos and Alexandros Gezerlis."--Publisher's website."

  • "After the London Congress of the Communist League, Marx and Engels worked togther on the organization's manifesto, which was completed in December 1847. In January 1848 it was approved by the Central Authority of the Communist League. In February 1848, it was first printed (in German) at League member J.E. Burghard's London printshop (46 Liverpool Street). The Manifesto remains one of the world's greatest political documents in content, style and influence."@en

  • "All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned ...Working men of all countries, Unite! This book truly changed the world, inspiring millions to revolution. Over 150 years after its publication, Marx and Engels' Communist Manifesto continues to inspire and provoke students, activists and citizens. The principles embodied within in it lie at the heart of thousands of academic and literary works. It is the starting point for people who refuse to accept that capitalism represents the final and optimum stage of human development. After reading this book, it is impossible to remain convinced that there is no alternative to unrestrained neoliberalism. In an introductory call to arms, renowned social theorist David Harvey asks us to look upon the Manifesto not as a historical document, but an invaluable tool for change. "the greatest charter of our movement." Rosa Luxemburg "an integral and systematic exposition of [Marx's] doctrine ... the best to this day." Lenin "laid the foundation for modern socialism." Karl Kautsky."
  • "With an introduction and notes by A.J.P. Taylor. Follows the progress of the Manifesto and examines the relevance of its nineteenth-century ideas to modern politics."
  • "The focus of this modern edition is not primarily the vivid history of Marx and Engels' most important work. Rather, with a characteristically acute introduction by historian Eric Hobsbawm, it asserts the pertinence of the Manifesto today. Hobsbawm writes that 'the world described by Marx and Engels in 1848 in passages of dark, laconic eloquence, is recognizably the world we live in 150 years later'. He identifies the insights which underpin the Manifesto's startling contemporary relevance: the recognition of capitalism as a world system capable of marshalling production on a global scale; its devastating impact on all aspects of human existence, work, the family and the distribution of wealth; and the understanding that, far from being a stable, immutable"
