History: A Verso Bookshelf


This year marked the fiftieth anniversary of the 1968 uprisings and the bicentenary of Karl Marx's birth – critical points etched into the history of literature and thought. Here we present our essential history highlights, including Sven-Eric Liedman's epic new biography of Marx, an anniversary edition of the classic political May Day Manifesto, the new paperback edition of the remarkable resurgence of right-wing extremists in the United States, and the radical movement at the heart of the English Revolution.
