Against the Grain

Remembering Ellen Meiksins Wood

Ellen Meiksins Wood upended the ways that Marxist thinkers look at class society and democracy, past and present. Her work shed new light on political theory, the origins of capitalism, and the politics of the left, among many other key themes. David McNally reflects on the pioneering political theorist and historian, who died two and a half weeks ago. And we rebroadcast excerpts of an interview with Meikins Wood about imperialism and capitalism.
