In other words, it is the construction and destruction of States which seal the basic shifts in the relations of produ Today, when ‘history from below’ has become a watchword in both Marxist and non-Marxist circles, and has produced major gains in our understanding of the past, it is nevertheless necessary to recall one of the basic axioms of historical materialism: This is potentially due to the limited scope and objectives of this study but it certainly indicates directions in which this thesis can be taken.

I read this book for the first time about 35 years ago. Patrick Link rated it it was amazing Dec 11, Some of the material, however, seems quite disconnected and there is comparatively little knotting together of economic, military, dynastic, secret diplomatic etc. Antonio Marino rated it it was amazing Jan 11, In the mids, Thompson wrote an essay for the annual Socialist Register that rejected Anderson’s view of aristocratic dominance of Britain’s historical trajectory, as well as Anderson’s seeming preference for continental European theorists over radical British traditions and empiricism.
On the other hand, without theory we tend to fall into a barren nominalism that would deny there even is such a thing as a social totality.
No one stretches your vocabulary better than the magus of western Marxism. Anderson delivered two responses to Thompson’s polemics, first in an essay in New Left Review January-February called “Socialism and Pseudo-Empiricism” and then in a more conciliatory yet ambitious overview, Arguments within English Marxism The case by case presentation of major developments in Europe allow the isolation of specific factors that underpin specific developments.

This book together with its long introductory study, Passages from Antiquity to Feudalism is arguably the most important single contribution to Marxist thought in the historical discipline since Trotsky’s History of the Russian Revolution.
This, I think, is of particular note when viewed from the angle of the theory of uneven development and this could be broadened in a little analysis to resist temptations towards viewing absolutism as a strictly chronological period and instead as a feudal state form.
