Celebrating 165th Year of Communist Manifesto
Widely recognized as world's one of the most influential political manuscript, The Communist Manifesto was published today on 21st February exactly 165 years! 165 years down the line, the manifesto continues to inspire scores of people across the world! To commemorate the event we are reproducing here an Introduction to the Manifesto written by the historian Eric Hobsbawm in 2012. We take this opportunity to also pay homage to this great Marxist radical. While we may not agree with everything that Hobsbawm says about the Manifesto, we can only be in total agreement with him when he proclaims "what might in 1848 have struck an uncommitted reader as revolutionary rhetoric – or, at best, as plausible prediction – can now be read as a concise characterization of capitalism at the end of the twentieth century. Of what other document of the 1840s can this be said?"--
