Karl Marx and Frederich Engels' "Manifesto of the Communist Party" (its original title) was written as a pamphlet for the International Workingmen's Association. At the time the association was the most leftward in Europe, and involved itself heavily in labor struggles and events like the Paris Commune. Marx and Engels brief but engaging works sketches out firstly what is wrong with the capitalist system we live under today, and what they believe is a far better system: socialism. Their writing concentrates on criticisms of capitalism, and what socialism will do differently - later revolutionaries like V.I. Lenin pick up on *how* to achieve socialism. While some portions of the Communist Manifesto are now dated, and some references obscure, the vast majority of the work is accessible to the modern reader. I first read the Manifesto in high school, and it convinced me to become a socialist.
