"A spectre is haunting Europe," Karl Marx and Frederic Engels wrote in 1848, "the spectre of Communism." This new edition of The Communist Manifesto, commemorating the 150th anniversary of its publication, includes an introduction by renowned historian Eric Hobsbawm which reminds us of the document''s continued relevance. Marx and Engels''s critique of capitalism and its deleterious effect on all aspects of life, from the increasing rift between the classes to the destruction of the nuclear family, has proven remarkably prescient. Their spectre, manifested in the Manifesto''s vivid prose, continues to haunt the capitalist world, lingering as a ghostly apparition even after the collapse of those governments which claimed to be enacting its principles.
THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO is one of the world''s most influential political books even to this day, and continues to shape our hopes and our ideals. The manifesto suggested a course of action for creating an equal and classless society. This work has stood the test of time and is today as popular as ever among intellectual readers and thinkers interested in the improvement of the common working person''s lot in life. A must-have political masterpiece.
