In Memoriam: Ellen Meiksins Wood 1942-2016

 

The death of Ellen Wood on January 14, 2016 represents an immense loss for socialists everywhere. As a frequent contributor to the Register since her first essay in 1980, special co-editor of the 1995 volume on Why Not Capitalism, and a member of the Register’s editorial collective from 1996 to 2009, her depth of socialist commitment, theoretical originality and profound insight may best be gauged from this excerpt from her essay on “The uses and abuses of ‘civil society’” in the Socialist Register 1990: The Retreat of the Intellectuals.
