    Without question one of the most significant books in modern history, The Communist Manifesto is a brief, populist pamphlet that distils the core ideas of Communism into accessible prose. Published just months before violent uprisings threatened to destabilise much of the European establishment, it outlines a view of history as a constant battle between the classes that will inevitably result in revolution. An angry call for a stateless world where the workers are no longer exploited, its depiction of the remorseless nature of the remorseless nature of modern capitalism is as alarming and striking now as it was in...read more

    The Communist Manifesto was conceived as an outline of the basic beliefs of the Communist movement. The authors believed that the European Powers were universally afraid of the nascent movement, and were condemning as "communist," people or activities that did not actually conform to what the Communists believed. This Manifesto, then, became a manual for their beliefs. In it we find Marx and Engel's rehearsal of the idea that Capital has stolen away the work of the artisan and peasant by building up factories to produce goods cheaply. The efficiency of Capital depends, then, on the wage laborers who staff the factories and how little they will accept in order to have work. This...read more

    The Communist Manifesto is an 1848 political pamphlet by the German philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. It presents an analytical approach to the class struggle and the conflicts of capitalism and the capitalist mode of production, rather than a prediction of communism's potential future forms. The Communist Manifesto summarizes Marx and Engels' theories concerning the nature of society and politics, namely that in their own words 'the history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles'. It also briefly features their ideas for how the capitalist society of the time would eventually be replaced by socialism. Near the end of the Manifesto, the...read more

    The 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...read more

    Ein faszinierender literarisch-philosophischer Text in einer künstlerischen Fassung, die beständig fragt, irritiert, herausfordert, nicht loslässt. 1848 erschien in London ein Text, der die Welt veränderte. Er wurde zum Ausgangspunkt ökonomischer Systeme, politischer Konflikte und nicht zuletzt einer Vielzahl von Missverständnissen, die bis heute das politische Bewusstsein prägen. Das von Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels verfasste Programm der Kommunistischen Partei ist als historisches Dokument einmalig und überrascht durch seine mitunter erschreckend weitsichtigen Analysen u. a. zur Ausbeutung der Arbeiter oder zur Globalisierung.

Jahrhunderts und die beiden deutschen Philosophen Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels verfassten ihr bis heute vielbeachtetes Werk Das kommunistische Manifest. Die Ideen von Marx und Engels sollten sich als prägend für...read more
