The Communist Manifesto

by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

I find it disturbing that so many people are rating this a 1-star and claiming it has always failed, even though true Marxist Communism has never been attempted, has never been tried, and has never been practiced in any of the so-called "Communist" nations that have been nothing more than totalitarian dictatorships.
This book is an excellent look not only into a different time, but also stands true today and will be true tomorrow as long as unbridled free-market Capitalism is idealized and it will be true for every generation that sees the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
