Marxism and Historical Practice (Vol. I)
Interpretive Essays on Class Formation and Class Struggle
Marxism and Historical Practice bring together essays written by one of the major Marxist historians of the last fifty years.
The pieces collected here offer a stimulating, empirically grounded survey of North American collective behaviour, popular mobilizations, and social struggles. What emerges is Palmer's sustained reflection on long-standing interpretive historical problems of class formation, the dynamics of social change, and how popular social movements arise and relate to law, the state, and existing cultural contexts.
