Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"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. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Library Journal

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.

Format: Paperback
68 pages, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels worked together for four years to write this book on political theories. In this book they discuss a society without classes, private property or state. It actually is a real fascinating read,

It is not exactly light, easy summer reading but interesting especially considering the age in which we now live versus that in which Engels lived. Some of you probably were assigned to read for one class or another.

I found the majority of this book to be mindless ramblings of old political struggles. However I found it interesting that the political structures and social relationships described seemed to not of changed much in the modern world. It described very well the exploitation of labor of capitalist markets.

Very nebulous at times. Confusing often. Irrational and one would think that a liberal Democrat or a socialist would think like this. My god don't you have enough sense to realize this is all BS I believe that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders wrote the Communist manifesto

My first time reading it.

Nothing to knock your socks off, just lots of wisdom about the "class struggle" and the communist plans for an autocratic government. Excellent discussion of workers and how they've been treated throughout the industrial revolution.

I read this easily in a few hours. What really amazes me about this book is how they basically dismiss the criticism that small landowners or small business owners are not the problem yet revolution means seizing their property just the same. They kind of just ignore that and justify that under the greater good. This is worth reading, but I had to give it three stars because the cookie cutter political theory approach is not dynamic at all.
