âWhat is globalization? Here is one of the best answers. It is the âconstant revolutionizing of productionâ and the âendless disturbance of all social conditions.â It is âeverlasting uncertainty.â Everything âfixed and frozenâ is âswept away,â and âall that is solid melts into air.â Yes, you have read this before. It is from The Communist Manifesto, by Messrs. Marx and Engels.ââThe New York Times
Here, at last, is an authoritative introduction to historyâs 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This beautifully organized and presented edition of The Communist Manifesto is fully annotated, with clear historical references and explication, additional related texts, and a glossary that will bring the text to life for students, as well as the general reader.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 âdead.â But year after year, the text only grows more influential, remaining required reading in courses on philosophy, politics, economics, and history.
âApart from Charles Darwinâs Origin of Species,â notes the Los Angeles Times, the Manifesto âis arguably the most important work of nonfiction written in the 19th century.â The Washington Post calls Marx âan astute critic of capitalism.â Writing in The New York Times, Columbia University Professor Steven Marcus describes the Manifesto as a âmasterpieceâ with âenduring insights into social existence.â
The New Yorker recently described Karl Marx as âThe Next Thinkerâ for our era. This book will show readers why.
