Without question one of the most significant books in modern history, The Communist Manifesto is a brief, populist pamphlet that distils the core ideas of communism into accessible prose. Published just months before violent uprisings threatened to destabilize much of the European establishment, it outlines a view of history as a constant battle between the classes that will inevitably result in revolution. An angry call for a stateless world where the workers are no longer exploited, its depiction of the remorseless nature modern capitalism is as alarming and striking now as it was in 1848.

I really enjoyed this listen a great deal. Definitely something all should listen to. I only wonder how communism would have made out if in a country that already had wealth to spread such as America. Instead, it always fell in the hands of the wrong people.
