Review:

Praise for How Revolutionary Were the Bourgeois Revolutions? and Holding Fast to an Image of the Past

“I was frankly pole-axed by this magnificent book. Davidson resets the entire debate on the character of revolutions: bourgeois, democratic, and socialist. He’s sending me, at least, back to the library.”
―Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums

“This is, quite simply, the finest book of its kind.”
―Tony McKenna, Marx and Philosophy Review of Books

“This is Neil Davidson at his very best. In a sparkling set of essays, Davidson offers a conceptually sophisticated and historically wide-ranging analysis of the work of classical and contemporary political thinkers. . . . In terms of its depth of learning it stands in comparison with Perry Anderson’s Zone of Engagement. An essential read.”
―Satnam Virdee, professor of sociology, University of Glasgow

Holding Fast to an Image of the Past is illuminating, authoritative, and sometimes very funny. . . . This new collection fruitfully combines wide-ranging erudition with vivid vignettes.”
―Bridget Fowler, emeritus professor of sociology, University of Glasgow
