Review: The Communist Manifesto

User Review  - Goodreads

havent understood as much as I'd like, but I'l be reading more about the subject. (Note: I understand the speculation on the application of communism but the ideology is very utopian and shouldn't really cause as much anger as I see it doing? I don't know, it's strange) Read full review

About the author (1988)

Karl Heinrich Marx, one of the fathers of communism, was born on May 5, 1818 in Trier, Germany. He was educated at a variety of German colleges, including the University of Jena. He was an editor of socialist periodicals and a key figure in the Working Man's Association. Marx co-wrote his best-known work, "The Communist Manifesto" (1848), with his friend, Friedrich Engels. Marx's most important work, however, may be "Das Kapital" (1867), an analysis of the economics of capitalism. He died on March 14, 1883 in London, England.
