Originally published on the eve of the 1848 European revolutions, The Communist Manifesto is a condensed and incisive account of the worldview Marx and Engels developed during their hectic intellectual and political collaboration. Formulating the principles of dialectical materialism, they believed that labor creates wealth, hence capitalism is exploitive and antithetical to freedom. This new edition includes an extensive introduction by Gareth Stedman Jones, Britain's leading expert on Marx and Marxism, providing a complete course for students of The Communist Manifesto, and demonstrating not only the historical importance of the text, but also its place in the world today.

3.0 The Communist Manifesto
I think the Communism ideology is not only dangerous but it could convince gullible people to willingly turn themselves over as slaves to those purporting to be leaders of such a movement.

I'm sure if Marx could have his way, he would prefer not to be remembered for The Communist Manifesto. His language is forceful and impassioned, which is not unexpected given his age at the time of its writing, but like many forceful, passionate works, it is also demagogic and sophistical.Like all h...
