Product description

Product Description

The Communist Manifesto is among the most widely read and disseminated texts in the world.

It has been more influential in the making of the modern world than any other piece of political writing. Rarely has call to arms been phrased in a language of such zest, beauty and purity. One hundred and fifty years after it was written, the Manifesto shows us an image of our own, present-day globalized capitalism with stunning clarity and accuracy.

Edited, with an introduction, by Prakash Karat, the present volume contains essays by three of India's foremost Marxist scholars, Aijaz Ahmad, Irfan Habib and Prabhat Patnaik, who explain the relevance of the Manifesto in terms of Marxist theory and praxis.

The volume also contains the complete text of The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, Preface to the English Edition of 1888 by Frederick Engels, and a note on the publishing history of the Manifesto in India.

Prabhat Patnaik retired as Professor of Economics at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. He is the author of Time, Inflation and Growth (1988), Economics and Egalitarianism (1991), Whatever Happened to Imperialism and other essays (1995), Accumulation and Stability under Capitalism (1997), The Retreat to Unfreedom (2003), The Value of Money (2008) and Re-Envisioning Socialism (2011). He is the Editor of the journal Social Scientist.

Irfan Habib (born 1931) is an Indian historian of ancient and medieval India, following the approach of Marxist historiography. He is well known for his strong stance against Hindu and Islamic fundamentalism. He has authored a number of books, including Agrarian System of Mughal India, 1556–1707. He was Coordinator/Chairman of the Centre for Advanced Studies, AMU from 1975–77 and 1984–94. He was Chairman of the Indian Council of Historical Research during 1987–93. He was the general secretary, Sectional President, and then the General President of the Indian History Congress (1981).

Aijaz Ahmad is one of India's best-known Marxist scholars. His best-known books include In Theory: Classes, Nations, Literatures, Lineages of the Present: Ideological and Political Genealogies of Contemporary South Asia, and, from LeftWord Books, Iraq, Afghanistan and the Imperialism of Our Time.

Prakash Karat is a member of the Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist). He served as General Secretary of the party from 2005 to 2015. He is the author of Language, and Nationality Politics in India (1972) and Subordinate Ally: The Nuclear Deal and India-US Strategic Relations (LeftWord 2008), and editor of A World to Win—Essays on the Communist Manifesto (LeftWord 1999) and Across Time and Continents: A Tribute to Victor Kiernan (LeftWord 2003).
