"The Global E.P. Thompson"
The latest issue of International Review of Social History (vol 61 part 1) (link is external) examines the global reception and appropriation of E.P. Thompson's The Making of the English Working Class (1963).
It aims to interrogate Thompson's legacy and vitality at a moment of renewed social and intellectual upheavals. Each of the five articles in this Special Theme issue is situated in specific and different locations: Japan, West Germany, South Africa, Argentina, as well as Czechoslovakia and Poland. They highlight the remarkable vitality of Thompsonian social history.
The International Review of Social History is published by Cambridge University Press on behalf of the International Institute of Social History.
