It is hard to review something like The Communist Manifesto while remaining politically neutral but I think it is safe to say that The Communist Manifesto is among the most important political works published in the last few centuries, if not the most important.      Bearing that in mind then it is quite disappointing to see just how small it is.

Marx and Engels fable about unionization and sharing the wealth. It was too unrealistic to ever be adopted where Marx thought it cshould be. Instead it became the social plan in an agrarian culture making no sense whatsoever.

An indispensable political manifesto that examines social and economic issues from a very left of center and progressive way. Controversial because of the various political regimes that have claimed to be Communist in order to further their own goals, but this book is essential nonetheless. A bible for the oppressed in a world of social inequality and the monopoly of the legal system by the bourgeoisie.
