The Norman Geras reader

What's there is there

First Edition

Eve Garrard and Ben Cohen

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides an unrivaled introduction to the political thought of Norman Geras by gathering his key writings in one volume for the first time
  • Illustrates the uniqueness of Norman Geras's contribution to Marxist theory by highlighting his dialogue with the core principles of liberalism
  • Gives a comprehensive overview of the febrile debates on the left over nearly two decades through the writings of one its key participants
  • Demonstrates how the left in Britain and elsewhere has been severely compromised by its indifference - at best - to mass atrocities, the rise of antisemitism and the triumph of moral relativism. This has made the book even more relevant following on from the Chilcot Report.
  • Author of the internationally admired Normblog, consisting of Geras' musings on politics, philosophy, football and books
