From the PublisherDavid Laibman's Deep History is to be welcomed-both for its reassertion of the scientific method against those forms of historical relativism that have become all too common in the wake of the linguistic turn, and for its defense of the socialist political project in the post-Soviet era.— Science & Society
"This book contains the best overview of the key variables determining capitalist development I've read. It makes just about all earlier work in crisis theory look one-sided and inadequate."— Tony Smith, author of Technology and Capital in the Age of Lean Production: A Marxian Critique of the "New Economy"
"A book like this, which provides an historical materialist account of history, an analysis of the nature and abstract logic of capitalism, and a theory of socialism is going to attract criticism from all quarters. But Laibman advances ideas that reflect years of thinking, that are clearly and systematically developed, and that are presented in an intelligent and well-argued way."— William H. Shaw, author of Business Ethics, Fifth Edition
