The manifesto has taken its place as one of history's greatest artifacts, inspiring and worrying entire populations as political tools, defining and describing many important literary movements, and bringing insight into the beliefs and intentions of some of the 20th Century's most disturbing criminal minds. Spanning from the earliest published examples dating to 16th C. Europe, through the Declaration of Independence, to the 2006 Euston Manifesto, The Manifesto In Literature will describe the authors and their causes, as well as the social, political, economic philosophies that are behind them. The context of history will play an important role in describing the circumstances of their writing and how they were received and acted upon at the time of writing and after.
