The Communist Manifesto (1848)

You must answer the following question for the 3rd paper assignment:

Does The Communist Manifesto address a universal audience? Is it relevant to the history of world civilizations? Or is it only relevant to European history?

Karl Marx, a German political refugee residing in London, published The Communist Manifesto in 1848. In the first section of the pamphlet, “Bourgeois and Proletarians”, Marx stated, “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.” Many of the examples Marx provided to illustrate that statement, however, were taken from European history, e.g. Ancient Rome or the Middle Ages. Your answer to the above question must be based not only on The Communist Manifesto, but also on examples from the history of world civilizations that have been covered in this course (the Black Death to Decolonization in the postwar era).

The paper must begin with an introductory paragraph that conveys the following points to the reader:

  • A clear and concise explanation of your answer to the assigned question
  • A brief guide to the structure of your argument

The following requirements structure the form of the paper:

  • 12-point font size
  • Times-New Roman font style
  • The lines of your paper must be double-spaced
  • Page numbers on every page (do not number the title-page if you include one)
