The Manifesto of the Communist Party was drafted as its party program by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels in Brussels at the order of the second congress of the League of Communists (December 2-8, 1847) The Manifesto marked the end of a year-long discussion within the League of the Just about the objectives and methods of proletarian emancipation and implied the conclusion of its transformation into the League of Communists. In Marxist literature this publication, which marked a milestone in the theoretical evolution of Marx and Engels and reflected the crucial principles of their world view in a relatively self-contained and complete form, is held to be the birth certificate of scientific socialism, which was fundamentally distinct from utopian socialism. Brought into its final version by Marx, it undoubtedly was the most brilliant and widely read writing of Marx and Engels; thanks to its down-to-earth analysis of society with its concise and cogent portrayal of a humanizing-liberating perspective for workers and the urgent demands for a revolutionary transformation of society. It was the most effective and most widely read publication of the modern working-class movement.

Somewhat more than 300 years ago, John Knox, who did more than any man to mould the thoughts of his nation and indeed of our English Puritans likewise was writing a little book on the 'Regiment of Women, ' in which he proved woman, on account of her natural inferiority to man, unfit to rule. And but the other day, Mr. John Stuart Mill, who has done more than any man to mould the thought of the rising generation of Englishmen, has written a little book, in the exactly opposite sense, on the 'Subjection of Women, ' in which he proves woman, on account of her natural equality with man, to be fit to rule.

Bastiat asserted that the only purpose of government is to defend the right of an individual to life, liberty, and property. From this definition, Bastiat concluded that the law cannot defend life, liberty and property if it promotes socialist policies inherently opposed to these very things. In this way, he says, the law is perverted and turned against the thing it is supposed to defend.

In the state of nature, natural law governs behavior, and each person has license to execute that law against someone who wrongs them by infringing on their rights. People take what they need from the earth, but hoard just enough to cover their needs. Eventually, people begin to trade their excess goods with each other, until they develop a common currency for barter, or money.

It is an undertaking of some degree of delicacy to examine into the cause of public disorders.   If a man happens not to succeed in such an inquiry, he will be thought weak and visionary; if he touches the true grievance, there is a danger that he may come near to persons of weight and consequence, who will rather be exasperated at the discovery of their errors than thankful for the occasion of correcting them. It also includes speeches and essays on political issues.

The author of this work was led to attempt it, by discovering, in her extensive travels, the deplorable sufferings of multitudes of young wives and mothers, from the combined influence of poor health, poor domestics, and a defective domestic education. The number of young women whose health is crushed, ere the first few years of married life are past, would seem incredible to one who has not investigated this subject, and it would be vain to attempt to depict the sorrow, discouragement, and distress experienced in most families where the wife and mother is a perpetual invalid..

Thomas Paine (1737-1809) was an English pamphleteer, revolutionary, radical, inventor, and intellectual. He lived and worked in Britain until age 37, when he emigrated to the British American colonies, in time to participate in the American Revolution. His principal contribution was the powerful, widely-read pamphlet Common Sense (1776), advocating colonial America's independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain, and The American Crisis (1776- 1783), a pro-revolutionary pamphlet series. Later, he greatly influenced the French Revolution. He wrote the Rights of Man (1791), a guide to Enlightenment ideas. Despite not speaking French, he was elected to the French National Convention in 1792. The Girondists regarded him as an ally, so, the Montagnards, especially Robespierre, regarded him as an enemy. In December of 1793, he was arrested and imprisoned in Paris, then released in 1794. He became notorious because of The Age of Reason (1793-94), the book advocating deism and arguing against Christian doctrines. In France, he also wrote the pamphlet Agrarian Justice (1795), discussing the origins of property, and introduced the concept of a guaranteed minimum income.

There is probably none to deny that the study of the principles of political science is a necessary part of a liberal education. But in a country where the people govern themselves we believe it is more than this: it is a necessary part of a common-school education. In the United States there is the strongest reason for this, for here not only do high and low alike elect their own lawmakers and rulers, but they also establish their own constitutions and determine even the fundamental principles upon which they shall be governed. The danger of entrusting such power to the ignorant has not failed of illustration here, and lately. But having universal suffrage for good or evil there is but one resource, to teach the people how to govern themselves. Noris a knowledge of the principles of legal science less necessary to every person. The laws of man know as little of mercy as the laws of nature, in that they never admit ignorance as an excuse for wrong. It is a proof of the essential justice of our system of jurisprudence, that so many pass safely through life, totally ignorant of the law, and relying merely upon their own sense of what should be. And yet every day gives proof that ignorance is always dangerous. The study of such a wrork will not make a youth a lawyer, but it will fix in his mind a system oi broad principles, which cannot fail to be useful practically.

Phineas Finn, the handsome Irishman, is equally successful at scaling the political ladder and gaining the affection of influential women. As he makes his precarious way in parliament he discovers how far principles must be sacrificed to the common cause, and how essential money is to political progress. Set during the turbulent passage of the second Reform Act of 1867, the novel paints a vivid picture of the compromises and tactics of daily political life. Loss of independence is felt just as keenly by Lady Laura and Violet Effingham, whose choice of marriage partner will determine their future freedom as much as their happiness. With politics and the personal so closely entwined, Phineas faces an act of conscience that will have a profound effect on his life. , Phineas Finn's engaging plot embraces matters as diverse as reform, the position of women, the Irish question, and the conflict between integrity and ambition.

This book is a comprehensive examination of the patterns of wealth, including education, taxation and other internal and external causes. The author attempts to explain the cyclical rise and fall of nations by examining the economies of nations, both ancient and then contemporary. He theorizes that as a nature grows rich it loses the very virtues and practices that led to its fortune. Consequently, countries ruin themselves by becoming prosperous without fail for their riches corrupt them. Playfair thinks that there is no cure for the disease but a variety of treatments that can extend prosperity. What makes Playfair such an original thinker is his insight that certain problems cannot be solved, i. e. becoming rich changes a person's and nation's character. All that can be done is to temper prosperity so that it lasts longer than it normally would.

Australasian Democracy is a Political Book. The limitation that author was compelled to impose upon myself will be observed in the apparent antiquity of the chapter dealing with Australian Federation; but this is not so great as might have been anticipated, the new Federal Convention having drafted a Bill which is based, to a large extent, upon that of 1891. For purposes of comparison I have, with the kind permission of the London agents of the Melbourne Argus, included an article in which that newspaper has summarised the provisions of the new Federal Constitution Bill. I have also included a brief account of a visit to the Coolgardie goldfields which, though alien in purpose from the remaining chapters, may not be without interest as a record of personal impressions of a Province which has but recently felt the effects of a budding prosperity. It has been suggested to me that I should attempt to discuss Australasian problems with reference to their applicability to Great Britain; but I have preferred to leave this task, of which the importance cannot be overstated, to persons of greater experience, and to confine myself to a record of Australasian action and to a comparison of the points of similarity or the reverse between the several Provinces. It will be seen, however, that, in some cases, as when dealing, for instance, with the results of payment of members and with the powers and privileges of Australasian Upper Houses, I have noted differences of conditions which must render deductions by analogy a matter of extreme difficulty.

W. F. Monypenny, in a Life of very high merit which he has not lived to complete with his own hand, 6 justly observes that “novels may not be read for biography, but biography may be used to elucidate novels, ” and it is only from this point of view that, in the following rapid survey of Disraeli’s principal writings, reference will be made to the events of his life, the most striking of which form part, for better or for worse, of our national history.

To show that this exclusion is not an act of tyranny, it must be proved either that the natural rights of women are not absolutely the same as those of men, or that women are not capable of exercising these rights. But the rights of men result simply from the fact that they are rational, sentient beings, susceptible of acquiring ideas of morality, and of reasoning concerning those ideas. Women having, then, the same qualities, have necessarily the same rights. Either no individual of the human species has any true rights, or all have the same; and he or she who votes against the[6] rights of another, whatever may be his or her religion, colour, or sex, has by that fact abjured his own.

A constitutional history of France that offered support to emerging Protestant theories of resistance to the monarchy. The author accomplished this second goal by presenting historical evidence for the elective nature of the early French monarchy. He also empha­sized the integral nature of a public advisory council that represented the inter­ests of the entire population.

The State of the Union is the address presented by the President of the United States to a joint session of the United States Congress, typically delivered annually. The address not only reports on the condition of the nation but also allows presidents to outline their legislative agenda (for which they need the cooperation of Congress) and their national priorities. The address fulfills rules in Article II, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution, requiring the President to periodically give Congress information on the state of the union and recommend any measures that he believes are necessary and expedient. During most of the country's first century, the President primarily just submitted a written report to Congress. With the advent of radio and television, the address is now broadcast live across the country on most networks. This Volume covers Union Address by John Tyler, the tenth President of the United States.

It is a political book. It is based on a document sent to me by my brother, to whom I have dedicated this work, and who has for many years been a resident of the frontiers of Zulu Land. The paper alluded to was transmitted by me, according to my brother’s desire, to His Imperial Majesty the Emperor of the French, together with a map of Zulu Land, which had been exhibited in the Natal section of the great Paris Exhibition of 1867. Both were graciously accepted and acknowledged by His Imperial Majesty. The country traversed by the daring men, whose adventures are related in the following pages, is still to be explored. The ruins of the Fort of Sofala, even now, lie buried in the sand, on the beach of the far away Indian Ocean. The Arabs still search there for the smelted lumps of gold, buried or lost by those of whose existence no other trace remains. The mysterious slabs still exist, encrusted with the dirt and grime of ages, on the mountain land of Gorongoza, and should my tale induce any adventurous spirit to make an attempt to clear away the veil of mystery which yet shrouds the remains of the Ruined Cities of Zulu Land, I can only refer him to Captain Walmsley, from whom the primary information contained herein was first gleaned, before whom the Missionary’s depositions were made, and who, for more than fifteen years of his life, has well and honourably filled the difficult and dangerous position of Government Agent, Magistrate, and Resident on the wild frontier of savage Zulu Land.

Nous apercevons, depuis plusieurs siècles, que les conditions s'égalisent, et nous découvrons en même temps que les mœurs s'adoucissent. Ces deux choses sont-elles seulement contemporaines, ou existe-t-il entre elles quelque lien secret, de telle sorte que l'une ne puisse avancer sans faire marcher l'autre? Il y a plusieurs causes qui peuvent concourir à rendre les mœurs d'un peuple moins rudes; mais, parmi toutes ces causes, la plus puissante me paraît être l'égalité des conditions. L'égalité des conditions et l'adoucissement des mœurs ne sont donc pas seulement à mes yeux des événements contemporains, ce sont encore des faits corrélatifs. Lorsque les fabulistes veulent nous intéresser aux actions des animaux, ils donnent à ceux-ci des idées et des passions humaines. Ainsi font les poètes quand ils parlent des génies et des anges. Il n'y a point de si profondes misères, ni de félicités si pures qui puissent arrêter notre esprit et saisir notre cœur, si on ne nous représente à nous-mêmes sous d'autres traits. Ceci s'applique fort bien au sujet qui nous occupe présentement. Lorsque tous les hommes sont rangés d'une manière irrévocable, suivant leur profession, leurs biens et leur naissance, au sein d'une société aristocratique, les membres de chaque classe se considérant tous comme enfants de la même famille, éprouvent les uns pour les autres une sympathie continuelle et active qui ne peut jamais se rencontrer au même degré parmi les citoyens d'une démocratie. Mais il n'en est pas de même des différentes classes vis-à-vis les unes des autres.

Je dois établir d'abord une grande division entre les partis. Il est des pays si vastes, que les différentes populations qui les habitent, quoique réunies sous la même souveraineté, ont des intérêts contradictoires, d'où naît entre elles une opposition permanente. Les diverses fractions d'un même peuple ne forment point alors, à proprement parler, des partis, mais des nations distinctes; et si la guerre civile vient à naître, il y a conflit entre des peuples rivaux plutôt que lutte entre des factions. Mais quand les citoyens diffèrent entre eux sur des points qui intéressent également toutes les portions du pays, tels, par exemple, que les principes généraux du gouvernement, alors on voit naître ce que j'appellerai véritablement des partis. Les partis sont un mal inhérent aux gouvernements libres; mais ils n'ont pas dans tous les temps le même caractère et les mêmes instincts. Il arrive des époques où les nations se sentent tourmentées de maux si grands, que l'idée d'un changement total dans leur constitution politique se présente à leur pensée. Il y en a d'autres où le malaise est plus profond encore, et où l'état social lui-même est compromis. C'est le temps des grandes révolutions et des grands partis. Entre ces siècles de désordres et de misères, il s'en rencontre d'autres où les sociétés se reposent et où la race humaine semble reprendre haleine. Ce n'est encore là, à vrai dire, qu'une apparence; le temps ne suspend pas plus sa marche pour les peuples que pour les hommes; les uns et les autres s'avancent chaque jour vers un avenir qu'ils ignorent; et lorsque nous les croyons stationnaires, c'est que leurs mouvements nous échappent. Ce sont des gens qui marchent; ils paraissent immobiles à ceux qui courent.

This is a essay book. There is not any thing which contributes more to the reputation of particular persons, or to the honour of a nation in general, than erecting and endowing proper edifices, for the reception of those who labour under different kinds of distress. The diseased and unfortunate are thereby delivered from the misery of wanting assistance; and others are delivered from the misery of beholding them. It is certain, that the genius of the people of England is strongly turned to public charities; and to so noble a degree, that almost in every part of this great and opulent city, and also in many of the adjacent villages, we meet with a great variety of hospitals, supported by the generous contributions of private families, as well as by the liberality of the public. Some for seamen worn out in the service of their country, and others for infirm disabled soldiers; some for the maintenance of tradesmen decayed, and others for their widows and orphans; some for the service of those who linger under tedious distempers, and others for such as are deprived of their reason.

This is a essay book. It must always remain to a great extent a matter of conjecture as to the exact authorship of 'The Tatler' papers. In the preface to the fourth volume the authorship of a very few of the articles was admitted. Peter Wentworth wrote to his brother, Lord Raby, on May 9th, 1709, saying the Tatlers 'are writ by a club of wits, who make it their business to pick up all the merry stories they can. Three of the authors are guessed at, viz:. Swift, Yalden, and Steele' ('Wentworth Papers', 85). Swift’s first recognized prose contribution to 'The Tatler' was in No. 32 (June 23rd), and he continued from time to time, as the following reprint will show, to assist his friend; but, unfortunately, party politics separated the two, and Swift retired from the venture.
