Summary:
"The socialist principles of the Communist Manifesto of 1848 have delivered oppression, poverty, and misery wherever they have been implemented. Yet remarkably, many of them endure in contemporary political discourse ... Gary Wolfram refutes these principles with a clear exposition of the capitalist system--the only economic system compatible with both social justice and individual liberty"--Page 4 of cover.
