ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

In this Spanish language edition of Manifesto, four famous rebels present a radical vision of a better world in three texts--Marx and Engels' Communist Manifesto, Rosa Luxemburg's Reform or Revolution, and Che Guevara's Socialism and Man--offering a passion, inspiration, and optimism that will resonate with a new generation.

Features a preface by Adrienne Rich which considers the relevance of Marx and Marxism today, and an introduction by Armando Hart.
Ernesto Che Guevara was born in Argentina in 1928. After fighting alongside Fidel Castro in the three-year guerrilla war in Cuba, he became Minister for Industry following the victory of the Cuban revolution. In 1966 he established a guerrilla base in Bolivia. He was captured and killed in 1967. View titles by Ernesto Che Guevara
Karl Marx (1818–1883) was a philosopher, social scientist, historian, and revolutionary. He is without a doubt the most influential socialist thinker to emerge in the nineteenth century. Although he was largely ignored by scholars in his own lifetime, his social, economic, and political ideas gained rapid acceptance in the socialist movement after his death. In Paris, Marx developed his lifelong partnership with Friedrich Engels (1820–1895). View titles by Karl Marx
Born in Westphalia in 1820, Friedrich Engels was the son of a textile manufacturer. After military training in Berlin and already a convert to communism, Engels went to Manchester in 1842 to represent the family firm. A relationship with a mill-hand, Mary Bums, and friendship with local Owenites and Chartists helped to inspire his famous early work, The Condition of the Working Class in England in 1844. Collaboration with Marx began in 1844 and in 1847 he composed the first drafts of the Manifesto. After playing an active part in the German revolutions, Engels returned to work in Manchester until 1870, when he moved to London. He not only helped Marx financially, but reinforced their shared position through his own expositions of the new theory. After Marx’s death, he prepared the unfinished volumes of Capital for publication. He died in London in 1895. View titles by Friedrich Engels
