Summary Of The Book
The Communist Manifesto, which was originally titled as Manifesto of the Communist Party, is an influential political manuscript that lays out the Communist League’s aims and program. The Manifesto presents an analytical insight into the class struggle of the historical and contemporary era. The book also highlights the problems of capitalism.

The Communist Manifesto is divided into 4 sections. The first part is Bourgeois and Proletarians. It focuses on the Communist theory of the history and relation between the Bourgeois and the Proletarians. The next section, Proletarians and Communists, attempts to understand the relationship between Proletarians and Communists. The third part discusses the Socialist and Communist Literature and their flaws. The final part discusses the position of the Communists and its relation to the other opposition parties.

This edition of The Communist Manifesto has been edited by Gareth Stedman Jones. In this edition, he discusses The Reception of the Manifesto, The Communist League, The Spectre of Communism, and Engel’s and Marx’s contributions. Gareth Stedman Jones also discusses the The Young Hegelians including Hegel and Hegelianism, the Emergence of the Young Hegelians, and the Battle over Christianity. It also discuses the Political Economy, Communism, The True Natural History of Man, The Impact of Stirner, and the transformation from Republicanism to Communism.

Written after 4 years of collaboration between Engel and Marx, The Communist Manifesto was originally written in German and published on 21 February 1848. When it was originally published, it raised much controversy. Today, it is an important manifesto, a powerful historical document, and an important classical work.
