Its ideas and concepts have not only become part of the intellectual landscape of Western civilization: They form the basis for a movement that has, for better or worse, radically changed the world.&&L/P&&R&&LP&&RAddressed to the common worker, the &&LI&&RManifesto&&L/I&&R argues that history is a record of class struggle between the bourgeoisie, or owners, and the proletariat, or workers. In order to succeed, the bourgeoisie must constantly build larger cities, promote new products, and secure cheaper commodities, while eliminating large numbers of workers in order to increase profits without increasing production--a scenario that is perhaps even more prevalent today than in 1848. Calling upon the workers of the world to unite, the Manifesto announces a plan for overthrowing the bourgeoisie and empowering the proletariat.&&L/P&&R&&LP&&RThis volume also includes Marx's &&LI&&RThe Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte&&L/I&&R (1852), one of the most brilliant works ever written on the philosophy of history, and &&LI&&RTheses on Feuerbach&&L/I&&R (1845), Marx's personal notes about new forms of social relations and education.&&L/P&&R&&LP&&R&&LI&&RCommunist Manifesto&&L/I&&R translated by Samuel Moore, revised and edited by Friedrich Engels.&&L/P&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LSTRONG&&RMartin Puchner&&L/B&&R&&L/B&&R is Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University, as well as the author of &&LI&&RStage Fright: Modernism, Anti-Theatricality, and Drama and Poetry of the Revolution: Marx, Manifestos, and the Avant-Gardes&&L/I&&R (forthcoming).&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R
