Marx’s manifesto called for a complete overhaul of capitalist systems of the time. History Background.

Irish Studies ReviewOn 12 May , James Connolly was executed by the British for his part in the Irish Easter Rising. A Marxist theoretician, historian, trade union organiser and revolutionary, he was a prolific writer. He is regarded as a founding father of the modern Irish state in 5/5(2).

Communist and "fellow traveller" books (by Senator McCarthy) In United States Senator Joseph McCarthy recited before his subcommittee and the press a list of supposedly pro-communist authors whose works his aide Roy Cohn found in the State Department libraries in Europe.
