Historical Materialism is a new interdisciplinary journal committed to
developing the explanatory and emancipatory power of classical Marxism. We
aim to counter the eclipse of social imagination evident in the widespread
assumption of a continuing capitalist future.

Historical Materialism provides a forum for:
 The reappropriation and refinement of the classical Marxist tradition for
emancipatory purposes.
 A genuine and open dialogue between individuals working in different
traditions of Marxism.
 Interdisciplinary debate and communication on an international scale
between graduates, researchers and academics.

"The birth of Historical Materialism was a major event, not only because it
provides a unique forum for non-sectarian Marxist debate but also because it
represents a change in the wind, a really promising sign of socialist
  Ellen Meiksins Wood

"Historical Materialism provides exactly what is needed today: a Marxist
antidote to postmodern and similar fashions. It is one of the few journals
in English actually turned towards the future   one of the few journals in
which a progressive theorist can publish without secretly feeling ashamed! "
  Slavoj Zizek

"Historical Materialism demonstrates that Marxist analysis is not merely
alive, but thriving again as the contradictions of globalisation generate
economic, social and cultural tensions which mainstream analysis cannot
account for." 
  John Weeks

"Historical Materialism is already among the most highly regarded journals
in Marxian theory published in any language. If a resurgence of Marxian
thinking occurs in the twenty-first century, it will deserve a good part of
the credit." 
  Tony Smith

"Where are the most important debates
on the central issues of Marxist theory taking place today? Where do today s
major Marxist thinkers congregate in issue after gargantuan issue? Surprise
  at least to those Marxist journals that have been around for decades  
it s in the pages of Historical Materialism. After the briefest of
journalistic apprenticeships, Historical Materialism has surged to the head
of the pack to become the Marxological publishing story of
the decade."
  Bertell Ollman
