Review While postmodernism is known for its wasteful indulgence in ambiguities and pointless nuances, Marxism is tradtionally known for its general disregard of the grey element. This contrast too makes the book readable among a pile of crtiques ad-nauseum, that leaves the reader lurching forever on a theoretical rollercoaster. --Contemporary Perspectives About the Author Ellen Meiksins Wood is the author of 'The Pristine Culture of Capitalism' (1991), 'Democracy Against Capitalism' (1995), and with Neal Wood, 'A Trumpet of Sedition: Political Theory and The Rise of Capitalism'.
