"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.
May 1 to honor the 150th anniversary of the original publication of Marx and Engels's masterpiece with this quality, affordable hardcover. This edition contains a new introduction by historian Eric Hobsbawn, who insists that the work should be read not only as a great work of literature but that, 150 years later, it still has much to teach us for the next millennium.

It's stupid (sorry for the word) to brand someone as a communist just because they wear the hammer and sickle shirts when they buy their personal stuff at Waltermart. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Maria
Honestly, a flimsy copy.
I've bought zines from people that were better put together.
For two bucks though, I don't know if I should really complain.
It was worth my money and is q good read for any wanting to study the works of where communism began.Published 16 days ago by Devon
