The work derives from an earlier work published as Cover Versions: The Communist Manifesto in Cabinet magazine, issue 4, Fall 2001.
Previously derived from an earlier book project Manifest by Tim Brennan and Geoff Cox / with Adrian Ward. A reprint of the first edition of The Communist Manifesto (in German) first printed in 1848 juxtaposed with screen shots of a custom-built web browser version (English). The book is a response to the paradoxes of theory and action, simply to represent what is already known but remains unimplemented.
The book encourages people to visit the website www.46LiverpoolSt.org [now offline] where links are found to contextual information and from where the specially-built web browser can be freely downloaded – the browser permitted public access to the entire contents of the users hard disk.
