Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“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
