Summary

This Norton Critical Edition offers a complete historical and philosophical introduction to Marx's Manifesto of the Communist Party. It will assist students making their first approach to Marx's thought as well as those ready to study the Manifesto in more depth. For beginning students, this edition provides a carefully annotated text of the Manifesto and two introductory sections by Frederic Bender, a "Chronology of Events Leading to the Communist Manifesto" and "Historical and Theoretical Backgrounds of the Communist Manifesto." More experienced students will benefit from selections on the sources of Marx's thought, the significance of the Manifesto in the history of Marxism, and recent interpretations of the work.

Author Biography

Karl Marx (1818-1883) was born in Trier, Germany and studied law at Bonn and Berlin. In 1848, he settled in London, where he studied economics and wrote the first volume of his major work, Das Kapital, in 1867, with successive volumes following in 1884 and 1894. He lived in London until his death.

Friedrich Engels (1820-1895) was born in Barmen, Germany. In 1844, he wrote Condition of the Working Class in England. He collaborated with Marx on The Communist Manifesto.
