After some four years of collaboration Marx and Engels produced this account of their conception of Communism, in which they envisage a society without classes, private property or a state. The Manifesto claims that the increasing exploitation of industrial workers will produce a global economic crisis, leading to a revolution in which Capitalism is overthrown by the new working class. This vision of Communism provided the theoretical basis of the political systems in Russia, China, Cuba and Eastern Europe, affecting the lives of millions throughout most of the last century.
Yet even as we get further from the Cold War and its political landscape, The Communist Manifesto remains a classic text: as a powerful work of literature, as a fundamental historical document and, most importantly, as an unrivalled depiction of the limitless power of global Capitalism - a concern that still has great relevance today.
