Reviews

'Sets a new standard in the study of the transition from feudalism to capitalism. A must for anybody interested in the transition debates' -- Michael Perelman, author of The Invention of Capitalism: Classical Political Economy and the Secret History of Primitive Accumulation
'A comprehensive, critical but balanced account from a classical Marxist perspective of the entire debate and its various controversies' -- Neil Davidson
'While many fantasise about an 'Empire' unified on a planetary level, this is a brilliant analysis of the role of national states in the forming and functioning of capitalism' -- Domenico Losurdo, University of Urbino, author of Liberalism: A Counter-History
