9780745332147: A Marxist History of the World: From Neanderthals to Neoliberals

This magisterial analysis of human history - from 'Lucy', the first hominid, to the current Great Recession - combines the insights of earlier generations of Marxist historians with radical new ideas about the historical process. Reading history against the grain, Neil Faulkner reveals that what happened in the past was not predetermined. Choices were frequent and numerous. Different outcomes - liberation or barbarism - were often possible. Rejecting the top-down approach of conventional history, Faulkner contends that it is the mass action of ordinary people that drives great events. At the beginning of the 21st century - with economic disaster, war, climate catastrophe and deep class divisions - humans face perhaps the greatest crisis in the long history of our species. The lesson of A Marxist History of the World is that, since we created our past, we can also create a better future.

Book Description:

'Enlightening and apocalyptic in equal measure' (Guardian)

Who needs 'objective' history? Not Neil Faulkner, for whom the history of the world is a relentless and disgraceful parade of shame from the brazenly wasteful tribes of the Bronze Age to Maoist China's sell-out state capitalism. If nothing else this book will make you stop and think and give you a taste of what it must have felt like to be a firebrand buoyed up by righteous revolutionary zeal in October 1917. If you like your blood boiled, this is the history for you. I can guarantee you'll be outraged - either because you agree with him or because you don't! (Guy de la Bédoyère, historian and author of Roman Britain: A New History (2006).)

About the Author:

Neil Faulkner is a Research Fellow at the University of Bristol, co-director of several archaeological field-projects, and author of numerous books, including A Visitor’s Guide to the Ancient Olympics (2012) and Rome: Empire of the Eagles (2008). He is a leading member of Counterfire and publicity officer for the Coalition of Resistance.
