Reviews

Praise for How Revolutionary Were the Bourgeois Revolutions?: "I was frankly pole-axed by this magnificent book. Davidson resets the entire debate on the character of revolutions: bourgeois, democratic, and socialist. He's sending me, at least, back to the library." -Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums "This is, quite simply, the finest book of its kind." -Tony McKenna, Marx and Philosophy Review of Books Praise for Holding Fast to an Image of the Past: Essays on Marxism and History: This is Neil Davidson at his very best. In a sparkling set of essays, Davidson offers a conceptually sophisticated and historically wide-ranging analysis of the work of classical and contemporary political thinkers. . . . In terms of its depth of learning it stands in comparison with Perry Anderson's Zone of Engagement. An essential read. -Satnam Virdee, professor of Sociology at the University of Glasgow Holding Fast to an Image of the Past is illuminating, authoritative, and sometimes very funny . . . this new collection fruitfully combines wide-ranging erudition with vivid vignettes." -Bridget Fowler, emeritus professor of Sociology, University of Glasgow
