A review of Karl Marx's "The Communist Manifesto". Written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in 1848. The writer claims that this book has grown into the most influential, most criticized and most well-known political pamphlet ever written. This paper explores how Marx and Engels describe the process by which humanity has become divided into two distinct and opposing social classes: The proletariat - the property-less working class and the bourgeoisie or the property-owning class.

From the Paper:

"The Communist Manifesto" opens with the assertion that "The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles"(p. 57). From this, the essence of the Manifesto is derived. Marx and Engels present humanity as divided most distinctly along lines of social class. As the world has traversed into modernity, the nature of this distinction has simplified."
