Description


Praise for How Revolutionary Were the Bourgeois Revolutions?

"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

In this book of essays Neil Davidson examines Marxism's relationship to previously existing traditions (the Enlightenment), as well as the precise boundaries of the Marxist tradition itself. With characteristic clarity and insight, he argues that tradition should not be seen as a set of eternally valid "lessons," but rather as a set of resources from which revolutionaries can critically draw.
