Description
On the occasion of Karl Marx's 200th birth anniversary, here is an authoritative edition of The Communist Manifesto 'Apart from Charles Darwin's Origin of Species,' notes the Los Angeles Times, The Communist 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.' Since it was first written in 1848, the Manifesto by Marx and Engels 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 and more relevant, and is required reading in courses on philosophy, politics, economics and history. In this extensively researched edition, renowned Marxist scholar Phil Gasper provides an authoritative introduction to history's most important political document, with the full text of the Manifesto. Thoughtfully presented in a reader-friendly format, it is fully annotated, with clear historical references and explanations, additional related texts, and a glossary that will bring the text to life for students as well as the general reader. The New Yorker recently described Karl Marx as 'The Next Thinker' for our era. This book shows readers why.

Utterly Disappointed

The book hasn't got any issues. It was in great condition and the delivery was fast. Also the paper quality is very good. The reason why I am giving this 1 star is solely because it is a communist literature. I have hated communism all my life and even more after reading this book as because they never want peace and prosperity. They only want violence and money in their pockets. I would strongly strongly recommend all of you to read George Orwell's "Animal Farm". That shows a clear picture o...

In the contemporary time Karl Marx theories are not fully applicable but all countries which tend to think and work for the public are somehow inspired by this great man KARL MARX.

Good quality product

The book initially begins with introduction of the authors, development and advent of communism in​ the world and in India. Then it has authors themselves reviewing their experience to bring out the edition of this book into some languages like Russian, German, English etc. The core of the manifesto is divided into 4 different chapters and in each chapter, the authors bash bourgeois (Capitalism) and it's ill effects. They also provide the historical progress which lead to the development of C...

Just okay

The book is all about communist theories and ideologies which are highly important for creating a better society where equality is the foremost concept. It share some vivid facts about bourgeois (middle class) and proletarians(working class. The book also deals with fragments of Russian and French revolution.
Paper quality is good and the cover of the book is highly satisfactory.

Brilliant

In the 18th century great inventions like steam engine of James watt fueled for the acceleration of Industrialisation in the western community. This lead to the exploitation of human labor community. There the idea of "communism" arise for the rights of working class people or the common men. The working mens united against the socio economical exploitation by the bourgeoisie.

This political document preaches about the historical incidents, socialist ideology and communist philosophy. And it...

Value-for-money

The books is a preview of basic philosophy of Carl Marx and how communism came in existence and how it evolved over the period of time. The book covers the life of Marx and his view on communism.

I think thoughts are much more powerful than anything else in this world. Our understanding of 'world' itself is result of a thought, an idea. It is fascinating to see how ideas reshape and completely transform their basic form with passing time. Communism is a powerful thought, and just like every...

A good read

It was my first attempt to read politics/philosophy. The English translation is good and required me referring to a dictionary virtually all the time. Overall, its a short crisp read to a historical document.
