This study is an analysis of E.P. Thompson's humanism and Marxism as they are woven throughout his politics, theory, and historical studies. Arguing against a "purely academic reading" of Thompson, Palmer examines the criticisms of Thompson's work and defends the view of history and human agency that leads to a politics of practice, rather than a politics of theory.
