Ellen Meiksins Wood was one of the first Marxist historians I read. She commented (I can’t recall where) that globalization might eventually bring the working people of the world together so that they could collectively overcome capitalism. She remained a Marxist despite Francis Fukuyama’s End of History and Jacques Derrida’s Spectre of Marx.
Verso have made available a list of open-access work by Ellen Meiksins Wood, who died recently.
