The definitive introduction to history's most influential and controversial political document, updated for a new generation of readers.
Since it was first written in 1848, The Communist Manifesto has been translated into more languages than any other modern text. All across the world--in countless places and idioms--it has been debated, shared, brandished, invoked, banned, burned, and even declared "dead." But in an era of escalating political, economic, health, and environmental crises, Marx and Engels' fierce indictment of capitalism is more relevant than ever, and their Manifesto remains required reading from the classroom to the picket line.
Scholar Phil Gasper draws on his decades of teaching and organizing experience to produce a beautifully organized edition of the Manifesto that brings the text to life. By fully annotating the Manifesto with clear historical references and explication, a glossary, and including additional related texts, Gasper provides an accessible and comprehensive reference edition suited to first-time readers and dedicated partisans alike.
