it was ok

The edition I read (ISBN: 9781936594436) offers no introduction from its editor and like the manifesto itself is 70 pages long. (you can read it online if your interested) I find it amazing and humorous that a manifesto this ambiguous and convoluted influenced revolutions and created tyrants all based on a political theory that failed in its inception. Both Marx and Engels correctly predicted a communist revolution but they failed to see that an extreme right revolution can also be spawned given similar conditions; we know this extreme right as Fascism.
