H-Socialisms seeks Book Reviewers. Starting in the next months, we will post book reviews on the history, practices, and relevance of 'socialisms', past and present. Socialism has meant many things to many people, and we hope for H-Socialisms to reflect this diversity of perspectives and interests. Book topics will include religious and secular millenarianisms, populist upsurges, the traditional foci on social democracy, marxism, and anarchism, the newer independent and autonomous social movements, recent trends regarding the commons and communalization, and much more.
