Historical materialism emerged in the second half of the s, in the heartlands of industrial capitalism. Its birthplaces were the major economic centres of Brussels, London and Manchester, and Paris—storm centre of the bourgeois revolutions of and It is true, of course, that Marx and Engels themselves were Germans, and the German determination of Marxism cannot be ignored. But it was only outside Germany that the new theory could come into being. After The Holy Family, the first product of the collaboration between Marx and Engels, written in Paris but published in Frankfurt in , it was not until , with the appearance of A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy, that a crucial work of historical materialism was even published in Germany. It was in Paris and Manchester respectively that Marx and Engels underwent the decisive experiences that led them to break with Left Hegelian philosophy and radical-liberal politics. Somewhat later Engels made contact with the Chartists. Their experience of the most advanced bourgeois societies left a decisive and lasting imprint upon the whole theoretical and political oeuvre of Marx and Engels. The focus on the development of the productive forces, the interest in technology, the importance attached to abstract economic theory, the clear distinction between the wage-earning proletariat and the socially and historically undifferentiated category of the poor, footnote5 the emphasis on the revolutionary role of the bourgeoisie, footnote6 the categorical refusal to make an unholy alliance with semi-feudal forces against the immediate exploiter of the proletariat, the ruthless hostility towards every form of romanticism, sentimentality and mysticism—all these well-known features of Marxism bear witness to its relationship to the Enlightenment, the Great French Revolution and the Industrial Revolution. Compared to England and France, Germany in the first half of the 19th century was both economically and politically a backward country. Industrial capitalism was in its infancy, and pre-bourgeois strata held power in the patchwork of petty states into which Germany was divided.

His writings are seminal when considering the intellectual history of modern African resistance movements and the impact of these movements on black freedom struggles in the African Diaspora'. On his part, Dr.

The Communist Manifesto by Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx

Sam Nujoma of Namibia describes Dr. Nkrumah as 'the source of the movement for the total liberation of Africa'.


That Dr. He says himself that he has sown the seed that shall surely germinate. His works exhibit areas where he promises to provide a full exposition of some issues like his thoughts on religion — but for the untimely exercise of the hand of death.

His task is to specify the subject of the discipline and its various branches and the discussions connected with it. It presents an analytical approach to the class struggle historical and present and the problems of capitalism, rather than a prediction of communism's potential future forms.

The book contains Marx and Engels' theories about the nature of society and politics, that in their own words, "The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles". It also briefly features their ideas for how the capitalist society of the time would eventually be replaced by socialism, and then eventually communism.

The history of all hitherto existing society 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 reconstitution of society at large, or in the common ruin of the contending classes.

In the earlier epochs of history, we find almost everywhere a complicated arrangement of society into various orders, a manifold gradation of social rank. In ancient Rome we have patricians, knights, plebeians, slaves; in the Middle Ages, feudal lords, vassals, guild-masters, journeymen, apprentices, serfs; in almost all of these classes, again, subordinate gradations.

Communist Manifesto [PDF]

The modern bourgeois society that has sprouted from the ruins of feudal society has not done away with class antagonisms. It has but established new classes, new conditions of oppression, new forms of struggle in place of the old ones. Our epoch, the epoch of the bourgeoisie, possesses, however, this distinct feature: Thereupon, steam and machinery revolutionised industrial production. The place of manufacture was taken by the giant, Modern Industry; the place of the industrial middle class by industrial millionaires, the leaders of the whole industrial armies, the modern bourgeois.

Modern industry has established the world market, for which the discovery of America paved the way.

The Working Class and the Birth of Marxism

This market has given an immense development to commerce, to navigation, to communication by land. This development has, in its turn, reacted on the extension of industry; and in proportion as industry, commerce, navigation, railways extended, in the same proportion the bourgeoisie developed, increased its capital, and pushed into the background every class handed down from the Middle Ages.

We see, therefore, how the modern bourgeoisie is itself the product of a long course of development, of a series of revolutions in the modes of production and of exchange.

Each step in the development of the bourgeoisie was accompanied by a corresponding political advance of that class.


The executive of the modern state is but a committee for managing the common affairs of the whole bourgeoisie. The bourgeoisie, historically, has played a most revolutionary part. The bourgeoisie, wherever it has got the upper hand, has put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations.
