Here are the details of the paper from my Professor: 
I would like you to answer the following question: What, if anything, is the relevance of the Communist Manifesto today? 

  1. This is not an academic paper; it is a reflection piece. What I am interested in is your thoughts about the topic rather than your understanding of the historical debates surrounding the manifesto.
  2. You don’t need a bibliography: you don’t need to go to Charles Library and read as many books on the manifesto as you can. As noted above, what I am interested in is YOUR ideas/reflection and not what has been said over the course of the last 250 or so years.
