Does the closing of the cold war era open up the possibility of reading the Communist Manifesto in new ways? In the first teaching edition of the post-Cold War era, Toews proposes new guidelines for reassessing the work to help students reconstruct the meaning of the Manifesto in its time and at the close of the twentieth century. Together with the complete text of the work, this brief volume includes some key foundational documents by Hegel, Feverbach, Marx, Engels, and others that show the evolution of and influences on Marxist theory over time. The editor's introduction traces the trajectory of Marx's thought from the 1830s onward, while providing background on the political, social, and intellectual contexts of which the Manifesto was a historical product.

Author Biography

John E. Toews (Ph.D., Harvard University) is professor of history at the University of Washington and has also taught at Columbia University. He has published widely on the theory and practice of contemporary historiography, the history of psychoanalysis, and the development of historical consciousness in nineteenth-century German culture, including Hegelianism: The Path Toward Dialectical Humanism (1981). He was the recipient of a MacArthur Prize fellowship and is completing a book on the culture of historicism in Berlin during the 1840s.
