Overview

This ebook is complete with a linked Table of Content making navigation quicker and easier.

The "Manifesto" was published as the platform of the "Communist League," a workingmen's association, first exclusively German, later on international, and, under the political conditions of the Continent before 1848, unavoidably a secret society. At a Congress of the League, held in London in November, 1847, Marx and Engels were commissioned to prepare for publication a complete theoretical and practical party programme. Drawn up in German, in January, 1848, the manuscript was sent to the printer in London a few weeks before the French revolution of February 24. A French translation was brought out in Paris, shortly before the insurrection of June, 1848. The first English translation, by Miss Helen Macfarlane, appeared in George Julian Harney's "Red Republican," London, 1850. A Danish and a Polish edition had also been published.

The defeat of the Parisian insurrection of June, 1848—the first great battle between Proletariat and Bourgeoisie—drove again into the background, for a time, the social and political aspirations of the European working class. Thenceforth, the struggle for supremacy was again, as it had been before the revolution of February, solely between the different sections of the propertied class; the working class was reduced to a fight for political elbow-room, and to the position of extreme wing of the Middle-class Radicals. Wherever independent proletarian movements continued to show signs of life, they were ruthlessly hunted down. Thus the Prussian police hunted out the Central Board of the Communist League, then located in Cologne. The members were arrested, and, after eighteen months' imprisonment, they were tried in October, 1852. This celebrated "Cologne Communist trial" lasted from October 4 till November 12; seven of the prisoners were sentenced to terms of imprisonment in a fortress, varying from three to six years. Immediately after the sentence the League was formally dissolved by the remaining members. As to the "Manifesto," it seemed thenceforth to be doomed to oblivion.

    I just received this on my Nook, and I’m not happy. (I do think the “Communist Manifesto” should be read and studied by people worldwide, and I agree with it.) However, my ‘copy’ is obviously just a photocopy of the pages of a version (preface dated 1888). The print is small and on a grey background, making it difficult to read. But the main problem is that each page has the bottom cut off! I don’t know how many lines of each page are missing; hopefully, only one. Pretty shabby, I think, for such an important work. It also has the whole book listed as “1/1” page even though the pages in the top corners go up to 48 (so you can’t ‘jump’ back and forth).

    A testament of time

    This book is still necessary and should be recommended as a requirement in all high schools.

    Don't be fooled!

    This was a sloppy and philosophically incoherent ideology. It is so easy for people to think communism or even socialism is the answer to their problems. No! You must research further. Libertarianism/voluntarism is the soundest political philosophy that I have found.
