The Communist Manifesto is one of the most influential pieces of political propaganda ever written. It is a summary of the whole Marxist vision of history and is the foundation document of the Marxist movement. Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels were aged 29 and 27 respectively when The Communist Manifesto was published on the eve of the 1848 revolutions. The authors had been close collaborators since 1844, and the Manifesto is a condensed and incisive account of the world-view they had evolved during theirhectic intellectual and political involvement of the previous few years. This new edition is critically and textually up to date, and includes the Prefaces written by Marx and Engels subsequent to the 1848 edition.

I didn't read the extra commentary that this book comes with, and I will admit a lot of the actual writing went over my head. The verbiage was pretty dense but the manifesto was pretty short which helped. I'm not super passionate on this subject which might explain why I probably missed some of the key points of the book, but the whole proletariat versus bourgeoisie cycle was interesting, as was the concept of disestablishing it to break the destructiveness of it.
