History, Labour, and Freedom: Themes from Marx is a 1988 book by philosopher Gerald Cohen.


History, Labour, and Freedom is a revision and expansion of Cohen's earlier Karl Marx's Theory of History: A Defence (1978).[1] The work reprints several papers that argue against the idea that libertarianism advances freedom.[2]
