Un piccolo grande libro che ha cambiato la storia del mondo
Prefazione di Diego Fusaro. Traduzione di Nicoletta Giacon
Alienazione, sfruttamento, mito della crescita economica infinita: sono le patologie su cui si fonda, secondo l’analisi di Marx ed Engels, il modo capitalistico di produzione. Le contraddizioni di questo sistema economico furono per la prima volta denunciate nel Manifesto del partito comunista, pubblicato a Londra il 21 febbraio 1848: Marx ed Engels pongono il concetto di lotta di classe alla base della propria teoria politica, individuando nel proletariato la speranza di un mondo senza classi in cui «il libero sviluppo di ciascuno è la condizione per il libero sviluppo di tutti».
Tra i testi politici più importanti di tutti i tempi, anche per la risonanza che ha avuto nella storia del Novecento, a oltre centocinquant’anni dalla pubblicazione il Manifesto continua a sfidarci con il suo messaggio.

Long overdue update (2013): I read this book five years ago and in almost every respect, I have mellowed considerably. You can read my review below. It's unchanged. You can read the comments below that. Also unchanged. I never seriously expected anyone to read this review, much less love or hate it so Leggi tutto
Read this and understand why your imperialist capitalist government spent the better part of a century playing hot potato with ICBMs, invading and incinerating peaceful, peasant countries, and making your mom and dad piss themselves under school desks. The elite were scared shitless and by no means
Communism doesn’t work. Its ideals are perfectly understandable, justifiable even, but the way it seeks to attain them, that’s just terrible. In reality communist policy falls apart or isn’t fully followed. The driving force is to achieve a classless rather than class based society. Sounds good on p Leggi tutto
What can I say? Marx was right. Almost.
I finally read this even though someone gave it to me forever ago. I think the ideas are interesting but I think this functions more into explaining communist ideology in that historical period and for explaining the positioning in regards to other groups. I would rather read more about the idea of
“Political power, properly so called, is merely the organised power of one class for oppressing another.” ― Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto Vol 20 of my Penguin Little Black Classics Box Set . To be clear, I'm not giving this 5-stars because I'm a Communist just waiting start a revolution (not that Leggi tutto
"You are horrified at our intending to do away with private property. But in your existing society, private property is already done away with for nine-tenths of the population." The Communist Manifesto is a good introduction to Marx's philosophy and ideals and I was frequently blown away by his obse Leggi tutto
Like many people (at least of my generation) I got this out of the library when I was in high school. You can't describe this as "good" or "a good read" etc. I would however recommend reading this with an open and thoughtful mind. I don't see how any thinking person can read this without seeing the
It is an error to assume that the problem with humanity is an inability to recognize our own problems. While it's true that we constantly look outside for answers, this is just because we are unhappy with the answers we have. We know that success requires hard work and knowledge, but we want somethi Leggi tutto
One word review: disgusting. There is so much I could say, and there isn't the space to say it in a review... Where do I even begin? For starters, the book began on a whining note. There were basically two main thrusts: first that free trade was so unfair to the poor proletariat; second, that the co Leggi tutto
