A specter is haunting Europe: The book about wealth, work, and society that revolutionized economic and political thought. In 1848, as revolutionary uprisings were spreading across Europe, a document was drawn up that viewed history in a new way—through the lens of class struggle. Arguing that power and wealth had always been concentrated in the hands of the few, who exploited the labor of the many, The Communist Manifesto examined the relationships between owners and workers, the proletariat and the bourgeoisie, and argued that capitalism contained the seeds of its own eventual destruction. The manifesto would go on to become one of the most influential works in modern history—its core ideas still discussed and debated today as governments rise and fall, and individuals and organizations continue to strive for solutions to the problem of the haves versus the have-nots.

No other Marxist text has come close to achieving the fame and influence of The Communist Manifesto. Translated into over 100 languages, this clarion call to the workers of the world radically shaped the events of the twentieth century. But what relevance does it have for us today? In this slim book Slavoj Zizek argues that, while exploitation no longer occurs the way Marx described it, it has by no means disappeared; on the contrary, the profit once generated through the exploitation of workers has been transformed into rent appropriated through the privatization of the ‘general intellect’. Entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg have become extremely wealthy not because they are exploiting their workers but because they are appropriating the rent for allowing millions of people to participate in the new form of the ‘general intellect’ that they own and control. But, even if Marx’s analysis can no longer be applied to our contemporary world of global capitalism without significant revision, the fundamental problem with which he was concerned, the problem of the commons in all its dimensions – the commons of nature, the cultural commons, and the commons as the universal space of humanity from which no one should be excluded – remains as relevant as ever. This timely reflection on the enduring relevance of The Communist Manifesto will be of great value to everyone interested in the key questions of radical politics today.

The Communist Manifesto is one of the most important political texts in history. Its stirring and even poetic language helped it become a vital document in the spread of socialist ideas. Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels argued that exploitation and suffering will not end until the whole class structure, which ensures people are treated as profitable commodities, is destroyed. Marx’s Das Capital provides the theory behind socialism, but it was The Communist Manifesto that sparked revolutions. This collectible, hard-back edition of The Communist Manifesto includes an insightful introduction by series editor and self-help expert Tom Butler-Bowdon, and is an important addition to the bestselling Capstone Classics. The Communist Manifesto: The Political Classic is a must-have for readers interested in political history, and will be of great value to everyone interested in the key questions of radical politics today.

“What is globalization? Here is one of the best answers. It is the ‘constant revolutionizing of production’ and the ‘endless disturbance of all social conditions.’ It is ‘everlasting uncertainty.’ Everything ‘fixed and frozen’ is ‘swept away,’ and ‘all that is solid melts into air.’ Yes, you have read this before. It is from The Communist Manifesto, by Messrs. Marx and Engels.”—The New York Times Here, at last, is an authoritative introduction to history’s 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 “dead.” But year after year, the text only grows more influential, remaining required reading in courses on philosophy, politics, economics, and history. “Apart from Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species,” notes the Los Angeles Times, the 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.” The New Yorker recently described Karl Marx as “The Next Thinker” for our era. This book will show readers why. Phil Gasper is a professor of philosophy at Notre Dame de Namur University in northern California. He writes extensively on politics and the philosophy of science and is a frequent contributor to CounterPunch.

SO, YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHAT 'DEMOCRACY' MEANS? The word 'democracy' is widely abused and 'defined' incorrectly. This eye-opening book explains exactly what the word democracy really implies. It demonstrates just how illegal the current situation is, adversely affecting the lives and livelihood of nearly all men and women today. DEMOCRACY DEFINED has been comprehensively researched and sheds light on how the repression of definitive democracy leads to a variety of far-reaching adverse effects, including political assassinations; fraudulent banking practices; and the unconstitutional denial of national issuance of interest-free currency and credit. The book also exposes the aetiology of anti-Semitism. SEE BACK COVER for REVIEWS of the essays on which this book is based. This book gives citizens all the facts they require to appreciate how and why the current system is wrong and sets out what We the People can do to rectify it.

This extensively researched book is enlightening - it reveals in irrefutable detail how far the modern political establishment and justice system have strayed from the prescribed lawful modus operandi. While establishing evidence for the legal case against governments' statism, THE MANIFESTO also gives readers inspiration and hope by showing "how" it is easily possible to reverse the decline and make mankind's ideal society achievable: the best of all possible worlds.

'An astonishing masterpiece ... a political classic ... has an almost biblical force' Eric Hobsbawm The Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels' revolutionary 1848 summons to the working classes, is one of the most influential political theories ever formulated. After four years of collaboration, the authors produced this incisive account of their idea of Communism, in which they envisage a society without classes, private property or a state. They argue that increasing exploitation of industrial workers will eventually lead to a revolution in which capitalism is overthrown. Their vision transformed the world irrevocably, and remains relevant as a depiction of global capitalism today. Edited with an Introduction by GARETH STEDMAN JONES
