We’re glad to be back this semester with a reading group of Ellen Meiksin Wood’s classic book ‘The Retreat from Class: The New “True” Socialism’. A sharp polemic against the Eurocommunist and ‘post-Marxist’ currents of the 70s and 80s, its core lessons against displacing a materialist understanding of class from the centre of left-wing politics is arguably as resonant as ever today.

Unless otherwise stated, we’ll meet downstairs in the Faculty of Law on the Sidgwick Site of the University of Cambridge, where there are tables and chairs.

Please message this page for further details and please email [email protected] for an electronic copy of the book if you can’t get a physical copy.

This is the second week we're meeting — if possible, please read up to the end of chapter 2!
