About the Author

Born in Westphalia in 1820, Friedrich Engels was the son of a textile manufacturer. After military training in Berlin and already a convert to communism, Engels went to Manchester in 1842 to represent the family firm. A relationship with a mill-hand, Mary Bums, and friendship with local Owenites and Chartists helped to inspire his famous early work, The Condition of the Working Class in England in 1844. Collaboration with Marx began in 1844 and in 1847 he composed the first drafts of the Manifesto. After playing an active part in the German revolutions, Engels returned to work in Manchester until 1870, when he moved to London. He not only helped Marx financially, but reinforced their shared position through his own expositions of the new theory. After Marx’s death, he prepared the unfinished volumes of Capital for publication. He died in London in 1895.

Written for grade levels above 12, this book explains the Power of Communism and why the World ought to be afraid of individuals who become members of this Movement. Its advocacy is clear: Abolish the ruling class and their Government and replace it with that of the Communists, using this Manifesto as a Bible. Under the Communist Control Act of 1954, the U.S. Congress declared Communism to be an unlawful "conspiracy." The book is therefore helpful in carrying out a revolutionary conspiracy. However, readers are cautioned that the Communist Control Act of 1954 provides severe penalties for any person who become a member of the Communist Movement to overthrow the U.S. Government by other than political means. Also, other U.S. criminal laws may be used against individuals who become members of the Communist Movement. This is definitely a great book to own.

You know how growing up, you have thoughts about the world that you can't quite put into words? Well, apparently Karl Marx and Frederick Engels had these same thoughts and were able to elaborate on them, too. This book changed the course of my life, and it will change yours, too.
