| Manifesto of the Communist Party |
by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels
| The Communist Manifesto (German: Das Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei) was first published on February 21, 1848, and is one of the world's most influential political tracts. Commissioned by the Communist League and written by communist theorists Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, it laid out the League's purposes and program. The Manifesto suggested a course of action for a proletarian revolution to overthrow capitalism and, eventually, to bring about a classless society.— Excerpted from The Communist Manifesto on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
