The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels
The Communist Manifesto is one of the most famous texts in human history. It has inspired generations of activists and revolutionaries, and remains one of the most perceptive explanations of capitalism. There are many well known pithy lines from the Manifesto but less well understood are the arguments it makes about the historical development and core dynamics of capitalism. Whether you have never read it or have already read it 10 times, there are always new insights to learn from the Manifesto.
