Dear Comrades/Colleagues

Historical Materialism seeks to publish critical discursive reviews/review
articles of recent publications that would be of interest to Marxists and
readers of the journal. In particular encourages reviews that contextualise
and extend debate, and accepts reviews of books that have affinities or
common debates upon which critical discourse can be developed. It normally
allows between 3,000 and 6,000 words for a review, and potential
contributors are asked to seek out a copy of the journal to familiarise
themselves with the style and nature of the publication - we tend to reject
short, purely descriptive pieces.

If you are a historical materialist and want to review for us, let us know
what areas you are willing to review in, and tell us what your research
interests are (some indication of previous publications would be useful). I
list below a sample of books currently available for review that we are
actively seeking reviewers for. If you want more details about the book,
please contact me. If you already know the book and/or the author/editor,
please give us some outline of how you would plan to deal with the book in a
review. For any enquiries or correspondence in this regard, mail Paul
Reynolds on reynoldp@edgehill.ac.uk (full contact details are below in the
e-mail signature.)
