Joseph A. Harris, M.D.
AudioFile, May 2011

This work includes Marx’s short, iconic book on socialism and communism and finishes with some very short writings by Friedrich Engels, who wrote on the same subject during the same period. The great value to listeners interested in Western thought would be to experience the short essay by the founder of one of the most important political ideas in the mid-nineteenth century. The translation from German seems smooth and fluent. Narrator Charles Armstrong has a British accent and adopts a brisk pace as he delivers Marx’s work. Roy McMillan, also British, delivers the contributions of Engels, the two narrators making a helpful distinction between the writers. The most noteworthy of Marx’s ideas was his prediction that the capitalism of his time would be replaced by socialism, and eventually by communism.
