Manifesto

"Let's be realists, let's dream the impossible." Che Guevara's words summarize the radical vision of the four famous rebels presented in this book: Marx and Engels' "Communist Manifesto," Rosa Luxemburg's "Reform or Revolution" and Che Guevara's "Socialism and Humanity." Far from being lifeless historical documents, these manifestos for revolution will resonate with a new generation also seeking a better world.

"The world described by Marx and Engels . . . is recognizably the world we live in 150 years later."-Eric Hobsbawm

"Rosa Luxemburg was a brilliant, brave and independent woman, passionately internationalist and antiwar, a believer in the people's 'spontaneity' in the cause of freedom; a woman who saw herself as Marx's philosophical heir."-Adrienne Rich

Reviews

"The world described by Marx and Engels... is recognizably the world we live in 150 years later." - Eric Hobsbawm (author of The Age of Extremes) "Rosa Luxemburg was a brilliant, brave and independent woman, passionately internationalist and anti-war, a believer in the people's 'spontaneity' in the cause of freedom; a woman who saw herself as Marx's philosophical heir." - Adrienne Rich "I thank Che Guevara for his daring as a revolutionary and also his writings and speeches." - Alice Walker "If you are curious and open to the life around you, if you are troubled as to why, how and by whom political power is held and used, if you sense there must be good intellectual reasons for your unease, if your curiosity and openness drive you toward wishing to act with others, to 'do something,' you already have much in common with the writers of the three essays in this book." - Adrienne Rich (from her Introduction)
