Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

This edition of "The Communist Manifesto" includes an introduction that traces the trajectory of Marx's thought from the 1840s onward and provides background on the political, social and intellectual contexts of which the manifesto was an historical product.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 174-176) and index.
