Perry Anderson, a founder and former editor of the New Left Review, teaches history at UCLA and is the author of numerous books, including "Lineages of the Absolutist State," "Passages From Antiquity to Feudalism" and, most recently, "The New Old World."

Anderson's talk is part of the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) Speaker Series: "The Right Wing Assault on American Democracy: What Is It? How Can We Defeat It?"

Established in 1998, PERI is an independent unit of UMass Amherst, with close ties to the Department of Economics. PERI staff frequently work collaboratively with faculty members and graduate students from the university, and other economists from around the world. Since its founding, PERI has become a leading source of research and policy initiatives on issues of globalization, unemployment, financial market instability, central bank policy, living wages and decent work, and the economics of peace, development, and the environment.
