About this Recording

MARX, K. / ENGELS, F.: Communist Manifesto (The) (Unabridged)

Without question one of the most significant books in modern history, The Communist Manifesto is a brief, populist pamphlet that distils the core ideas of Communism into accessible prose. Published just months before violent uprisings threatened to destabilise much of the European establishment, it outlines a view of history as a constant battle between the classes that will inevitably result in revolution. An angry call for a stateless world where the workers are no longer exploited, its depiction of the remorseless nature of modern capitalism is as alarming and striking now as it was in 1848.
