My name is Peter Harrison. I’m neither a professional blogger nor a historian nor a political scientist.
Why write a blog about Marx and Marxism then?
Quite simply I have been reading about Marx, Marxism, and history for some years (since studying some parts during my degree 20 years ago). I’m an interested generalist you might say. As such this blog is mostly for personal consumption. It is my attempt to begin to record my thoughts on the subject.
It’s likely to be quite random and inconsistent. What I write and how frequently I write it is likely to be determined by what book I’m reading at the time, and how interesting and thought provoking I’m finding it.
