It is hard to imagine a book, essay or pamphlet outside of the Bible that has been more influential, and widely read, than Marx and Engels' "Communist Manifesto". Written in 1848, this small book has become one of the world's most influential political tracts. Part of the "Rethinking the Western Tradition" series, this edition of the "Manifesto" features essays from such distinguished contributors as Vladimir Tismaneanu, Steven Lukes, Saskia Sassen, and Stephen Bronner that address its relevance in the post-1989, post-Cold War world, in which the ideological polarities of the twentieth century have been effaced, what was considered "the left" is in intellectual and political disarray, and Marxism has faded as an attractive mode of thought for most intellectuals. It also includes much ancillary material, including Engels' "Why I Am a Communist".

1. About the Author(s): Karl Marx was born in 1818 in Trier, Germany and studied in Bonn and Berlin. Influenced by Hegel, he later reacted against idealist philosophy and began to develop his own theory of historical materialism. He related the state of society to its economic foundations and mode of production, and recommended armed revolution on the part of the proletariat. Together with Engels, who he met in Paris, he wrote the Manifesto of the Communist Party. He lived in England as a refugee until his death in 1888, after participating in an unsuccessful revolution in Germany.
