Ellen Meiksins Wood is a leading contemporary political theorist who has elaborated an innovative approach to the history of political thought, the 'social history of political theory'. She has been described as the founder, together with the historian Robert Brenner, of 'Political Marxism', a distinct version of historical materialism which has inspired a research program that spans a number of academic disciplines. Organized thematically, this Reader brings together selections from Wood's groundbreaking scholarship, published over three decades, providing an overview of her original interpretations of capitalism, precapitalist societies, the state, political theory, democracy, citizenship, liberalism, civil society, the Enlightenment, globalization, imperialism, and socialism.

Review:

The writing is so supple and accessible, and the argument so persuasive, it's like watching a cloudy mixture of ideas being turned into a clear solution.”
Adrienne Rich, on The Origins of Capitalism

Few historians of comparative political thought are in the same league as Ellen Wood, who surveys the whole sweep of ancient and medieval thinkers with equal magisterial brilliance of insight.”
Professor Paul Cartledge, University of Cambridge

Meiksins Wood is a rare breed an academic with the soul of a storyteller.”
Morning Star

Immensely impressive, bold and erudite ... Meiksins Wood s conclusions are undeniably nuanced, challenging and important.”
Times Higher Education Supplement
