Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Let’s be realists, let’s dream the impossible." Che Guevara’s words summarize the radical vision of the four famous rebels presented in this book: Marx and Engels’ Communist Manifesto, Rosa Luxemburg’s Reform or Revolution and Che Guevara’s Socialism and Humanity. Far from being lifeless historical documents, these manifestos for revolution will resonate with a new generation also seeking a better world.

"The world described by Marx and Engels . . . is recognizably the world we live in 150 years later."—Eric Hobsbawm

"Rosa Luxemburg was a brilliant, brave and independent woman, passionately internationalist and antiwar, a believer in the people’s ‘spontaneity’ in the cause of freedom; a woman who saw herself as Marx’s philosophical heir."—Adrienne Rich

Synopsis:

Three classic revolutionary manifestos show why and how another world is possible.
