Past & Present Reading Group

Building on earlier initiatives, this reading group was launched in 2014 within the Department of Political Economy at the University of Sydney to provide a regular focus on classics of heterodox political economy, past and present. The group meets once a week to share comments, thoughts, and reflections on key books shaping the broad contours of political economy. The aim is to carry an online repository of book reviews on all the titles featured in the Past & Present Reading Group. These reviews may be short ‘squibs’ or more capacious reviews that want to say something about political economy in and beyond the Marxist tradition.

If you want to join the group or suggest an idea for a book to review please contact

Adam David Morton.

The list of books read, reviewed and by whom in the group include the following reviews (most recent first), which are accessible by clicking on the individual tabs, below:
