This paper explores Carroll’s iconoclastic role as a political and business writer during the Civil War era.

Towards a Historical Materialist Critique of Ethnicity: Armenianness between the Caucasus and Medieval New Rome

Nicholas S.M. Matheou
In this paper I outline a historical materialist framework for the transhistorical critique of ethnicity, providing a case study in the shaape of Armenian settlements in medieval New Rome.

The purpose is not to reject non-Marxist social theory,...
