CFP: Chapter on the Rise of Capitalism in Germany for Edited Volume (due September 2017)

We are preparing an edited volume of case studies in the transitions to capitalism in a variety of societies from a “political Marxist” perspective (i.e. using the historical and theoretical insights in the work of Robert Brenner and Ellen Meiksins Wood).
