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.

About the Author:

Born in Westphalia in 1820, Friedrich Engels was the son of a textile manufacturer. After military training in Berlin and already a convert to communism, Engels went to Manchester in 1842 to represent the family firm. A relationship with a mill-hand, Mary Bums, and friendship with local Owenites and Chartists helped to inspire his famous early work, The Condition of the Working Class in England in 1844. Collaboration with Marx began in 1844 and in 1847 he composed the first drafts of the Manifesto. After playing an active part in the German revolutions, Engels returned to work in Manchester until 1870, when he moved to London. He not only helped Marx financially, but reinforced their shared position through his own expositions of the new theory. After Marx’s death, he prepared the unfinished volumes of Capital for publication. He died in London in 1895.

Book Description Penguin Books. Paperback / softback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, "What is globalization? Here is one of the best answers. It is the constant revolutionizing of production' and the endless disturbance of all social conditions.' It is everlasting uncertainty.' Everything fixed and frozen' is swept away, ' and all that is solid melts into air.' Yes, you have read this before. It is from "The Communist Manifesto, by Messrs. Marx and Engels."-"The New York Times Here, at last, is an authoritative introduction to history's most important political document, with the full text of "The Communist Manifesto by Marx and Engels. This beautifully organized and presented edition of "The Communist Manifesto is fully annotated, with clear historical references and explication, additional related texts, and a glossary that will bring the text to life for students, as well as the general reader. Since it was first written in 1848, the "Manifesto has been translated into more languages than any other modern text. It has been banned, censored, burned, and declared "dead." But year after year, the text only grows more influential, remaining required reading in courses on philosophy, politics, economics, and history. "Apart from Charles Darwin's "Origin of Species," notes the "Los Angeles Times, the "Manifesto "is arguably the most important work of nonfiction written in the 19th century." "The Washington Post calls Marx "an astute critic of capitalism." Writing in "The New York Times, Columbia University Professor Steven Marcus describes the "Manifesto as a "masterpiece" with "enduring insights into social existence." "The New Yorker recently described Karl Marx as "The Next Thinker" for our era. This book will show readers why. Phil Gasper is aprofessor of philosophy at Notre Dame de Namur University in northern California. He writes extensively on politics and the philosophy of science and is a frequent contributor to "CounterPunch. Bookseller Inventory # B9780143037514
