WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY DAVID AARONOVITCH
The Communist Manifesto was first published in London, by two young men in their late twenties, in 1848. Its impact reverberated across the globe and throughout the next century, and it has come to be recognised as one of the most important political texts ever written. Maintaining that the history of all societies is a history of class struggle, the manifesto proclaims that communism is the only route to equality, and is a call to action aimed at the proletariat. It is an essential read for anyone seeking to understand our modern political landscape.

“A Classic that has not aged well”
A very short introduction to Marx's beliefs, that now in all honesty seem completely ridiculous. however, the book's significance still stands.
“The Communist Manifesto”
The quality of the book is wonderful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
