Commissioned by the Communist League and written by communist theorists Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, it laid out the League's purposes and program.

About the Author

Karl Heinrich Marx (May 5, 1818 – March 14, 1883) was a Prussian
philosopher, political economist, and revolutionary. Marx addressed
a wide range of issues; he is most famous for his analysis of
history, summed up in the opening line of the introduction to the
Communist Manifesto (1848): "The history of all hitherto existing
society is the history of class struggles." Marx believed that
capitalism would be replaced by socialism which in turn would bring
upon communism.

Friedrich Engels (November 28, 1820, Barmen, Prussia – August 5,
1895, London, England) a 19th-century German social scientist and
philosopher, developed communist theory alongside his better-known
collaborator, Karl Marx, co-authoring The Communist Manifesto
(1848). Engels also edited the second and third volumes of Das
Kapital after Marx's death.
