Publisher's Summary

The history of all hitherto existing societies is the history of class struggles. Freeman and slave, patrician and plebeian, lord and serf, guild-master and journeyman, in a word, oppressor and oppressed, stood in constant opposition to one another, carried on an uninterrupted, now hidden, now open fight, a fight that each time ended, either in a revolutionary re-constitution of society at large, or in the common ruin of the contending classes.

Nicely done

Rated 5 stars because of the man reading it, not the book itself. Important book to read, even if you don't agree with it, though.

Important Piece of History

Any additional comments?

It's an extremely important perspective to learn from. Understanding the Marxist viewpoint is a great tool to use in deciphering modern economic proposals, even though most Americans (myself included) would likely disagree with Marx and Engels' ideas. It sheds some light on why some people hold feelings of such disdain towards capitalism, but also why capitalism is so effective. It's not long, and is well worth the time and money.
