This text provides a study of 20th-century Marxism, one of the most influential contemporary academic traditions in history and social theory. The book includes: Maurice Dobb and the debate on the transition to capitalism; feudalism and the English peasantry; the English Revolution; workers, peasants and world history; and the making of the English working class. It also compares the British Marxist perspective on history with other approaches, such as that of the French Annales school, and concludes with a discussion of the contribution of the British Marxist historians to the formation of a democratic historical consciousness.
