Haymarket Books is pleased to announce the release, in collaboration  
with Brill academic publishers, of the Historical Materialism book  

We believe that the U.S. release of the 13 new titles in this series  
represents an important new addition to Marxist theory and historical  

As with the quarterly Historical Materialism journal with which it is  
affiliated, the titles in the HM book series address topics and themes  
of sustained interest to critical scholars.

These include analyses of global political economy, the environment,  
ideology, and contemporary culture; new research and theory exploring  
the intersections between exploitation and oppression; and critical  
engagement among diverse currents of anti-capitalist thought. The  
series also includes the republication of classic texts in the Marxist  

The contemporary political moment is one characterized by intense  
turbulence and crisis, but also of intensifying possibility for those  
who seek to both interpret capitalist society as well as transform it.

The publication of the Historical Materialism book series aims to make  
a contribution to the project of critical scholarship and social
