“The Communist Manifesto” still remains a landmark text: a work that continues to influence and provoke debate on capitalism and class. The author’s extensive and scholarly introduction provides an assessment of the place of “The Communist Manifesto” in history, and its continuing relevance as a depiction of global capitalism.
‘An astonishing masterpiece … a political classic … has an almost biblical force’ Eric HobsbawmThe 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
