Publisher’s Note

The Indian Institute of Marxist Studies is planning to reprint a series of Marxist classics to help new readers get acquainted with the Marxist worldview. The Communist Manifesto marks the beginning of this series. In this edition we have included, in addition to the original text of the classic together with the Prefaces written jointly by Marx and Engels and by Engels alone, Vinod Mishra’s Foreword to a Hindi edition of the classic published by Samkaleen Prakashan in November 1998 and an Introduction to this edition by Arindam Sen.

This English version will be followed by translations in several other languages. Your feedback and suggestions will be of great value in this endeavour.
