The Communist Manifesto by German philosophers Karl Marx And Friedrich Engels, is a pamphlet published in 1848, and was originally called the Manifesto of the Communist Party. Recognised as one of the most influential political documents, it lays out the conflicts of capitalism and presents an analytical approach to the historical and present class struggles. Calling for a 'forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions', it was published as the revolutions around Europe were beginning. Divided into four sections (Bourgeois and Proletarians, Proletarians and Communists, Socialist and Communist Literature, and, Position of the Communists in Relation to the Various Opposition Parties), The Communist Manifesto summarises the Marxist theory that 'the history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles'.
