The Communist Manifesto

by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

This was our gospel when I grew up in China. After getting an economics Ph.D. from Yale and finally became a professor in this field, I would still recommend you to read this book. Not because everything it said is correct, for we know it is not, but because it offers you a chance to look at the world from a refreshingly different perspective. In this way you will not be too narrow-minded. Much of what it said about capitalism is still true in the developing countries, including rapidly growing ones like China. Seeing the cheap labors toiling in the factories, and seeing how bad the working environment is and how little help and care the workers get, you may understand the authors more, about their compassion, about their ideas. After all, the world market is linked, an so many goods you might be consuming are produced in these factories. Then, hopefully,you may understand more events in this World, and not just in a few most developed countries sitting on the top of the international consumption chain.
