<p><b>DISCOVER THE WORK THAT LAUNCHED REVOLUTIONS AROUND THE WORLD</b></p> <p>Although it was published in 1848, <i>The Communist Manifesto</i> is as controversial and provocative as ever. Its stirring and poetic language helped spread Marx and Engels' socialist message far and wide, unleashing a century of political revolution.</p> <p>In an age of great inequality, the Manifesto's message of an exploited and suffering working class that must rise up and claim the means of production and wealth continues to resonate. This deluxe edition features an insightful introduction from Tom Butler-Bowdon which explains how the text came to be written, and why it remains popular.</p>

<p><b>Karl Marx</b> was born into a Jewish family in imperial Prussia. Considered too radical to be given an academic post at university, he became a crusading journalist at a left-wing newspaper before being exiled to Paris, then to Brussels, and finally settling with his family in London. As the intellectual father of communism, Marx's impact on history is massive. It began with <i>The Communist Manifesto</i>.</p><p><b>Friedrich Engels</b> worked in his family's cotton manufacturing business, but in his private time mixed with radicals. His book <i>The Condition of the Working Class in England</i> was an exposé of the terrible factory conditions and child labour of the time. Engels was Marx's lifelong collaborator, and he edited the unfinished volumes of <i>Das Kapital</i> after Marx's death.</p><p><b>Tom Butler-Bowdon</b> is Series Editor of the Capstone Classics series, and has provided Introductions for Plato's <i>Republic</i>, Adam Smith’s <i>Wealth of Nations</i>, Machiavelli’s <i>The Prince</i>, Florence Scovel Shinn’s <i>The Game of Life and How to Play It</i>, and Kahlil Gibran’s <i>The Prophet</i>.
