Sintesi dell'editore

Communist Manifesto examines the theory and goals expounded by Karl Marx. Marx argues that history flows inevitably toward a social revolution, which will result in a society without economic classes. The influence on Marx of Hegel, Feuerbach, and other philosophers is examined, as is his friendship and collaboration with Engels.

Social Contract, by Rousseau, argues that people secure their liberty by entering into an implied contract with government. Rather than being protected by natural rights, their liberty is secured by the "general will", one of the most famous and troublesome ideas in political theory. This presentation explores Rousseau's concept of social order and its implications for individual freedom and the good of society.

Deceiving but still useful!

This book is not a reading of the communist manifesto. Rather it talks about Karl Marx and select passages of the manifesto. I must say though, after reading this first, the communist manifesto made a lot more sense and in context.

Well done

I enjoyed these, both, very much. The producers -- Knowledge Products -- employ both quotes and analysis of the title works, along with the author's life experiences. This offers the listener an overview of the works, not simply a dry reading.

If you're at all interested in 18th-19th century political philosophy, give this a try.

Fake accents are obnoxious

The bad accents are unnecessary and distract from listening to what is actually being said.

Hard to follow

Both provide excellent historical background. But philosophical arguments, especially those of Rousseau were extremely hard to follow.

Accents

Lose the phony accents. Detracts from book. Not necessary. Too bad too amateurish. Mmm
Nnn

Good but not as detailed as I expected

The first audiobook I listened to in this series is the one on Adam Smith (The Wealth of Nations). That set a very high bar against which this one falls short in the level of detail. 7.5 hours was spent treating Adam Smith alone but only a little over an jour for Marx?
