Selected Publications: 2010-2020

The following selection from 2010-2020 is categorised into four areas: Socialism in Power (with a focus on Chinese Marxism); Soviet Marxism; Western Marxism; Marxist economics of the ancient world. These four areas also have a temporal progression, moving in reverse from current research to earlier research.
