Il est connu du public français depuis septembre 2011 avec son essai Marx écologiste aux éditions Amsterdam.

Il a publié plus d'une centaine d'articles, rédigé plus d'une douzaine de livres et plus d'une centaine de compte rendu de conférence.

Foster collabore souvent avec Robert W. McChesney. Plus récemment, il a coécrit avec McChesney The Endless Crisis: How Monopoly-Finance Capital Produces Stagnation and Upheaval from the USA to Chine, disponible dans Monthly Review en automne 2012.
