The essays collected here straddle four decades of work in both historiography and Marxist theory, combining source-based historical work in a wide range of languages with sophisticated discussion of Marxs categories. Key themes include the distinctions that are crucial to restoring complexity to the Marxist notion of a mode of production; the emergence of medieval relations of production; the origins of capitalism; the dichotomy between free and unfree labour; and essays in agrarian history that range widely from Byzantine Egypt to 19th-century colonialism. The essays demonstrate the importance of reintegrating theory with history and of bringing history back into historical materialism. An introductory chapter ties the collection together and shows how historical materialists can develop an alternative to Marxs Asiatic mode of production. Jairus Banaji, spent most of his academic life at Oxford. He has been a Research Associate in the Department of Development Studies, SOAS, at University of London, for the past several years. He is the author of Agrarian Change in Late Antiquity (Oxford, 2007).
