Summary
  • The thought of Antonio Gramsci continues to enjoy widespread appeal in contemporary political and social theory. This book draws together some of the world's leading scholars on Gramsci to critically explore key ideas, debates and themes in his work in an accessible manner, relating them to contemporary politics and society.
  • 'This volume could have been subtitled 'Resolving the Gramsci Paradox.' How is it that a political activist and thinker so deeply concerned with the specific crises of his turbulent times has remained such a fertile source of ideas and insights for theorists and critics addressing the most pressing social, political and cultural issues of the twenty-first century? The essays in this volume are distinctive for simultaneously bringing Gramsci's continuing relevance into bold relief while greatly enriching our understanding of the theoretical core of his perdurable writings.' - Professor Joseph Buttigieg, University of Notre Dame, USA 'In this most welcome book - a well-timed response to the crisis of neo-liberal hegemony - Gramsci's legacy is inventoried through accurate scholarship and creatively revived with deep political commitment. A brilliant challenge to the trivialization of revolutionary thought and an invitation to critically rethink the history of Marxism beyond slogans.' - Dr Fabio Frosini, Universita di Urbino, Italy 'This wide-ranging, coherent and critically engaged collection on the interwoven nature of Gramsci's theoretical and political life as a revolutionary provides exciting and provocative insights into many aspects of Gramsci's work, undermining taken-for-granted readings and showing that he is a thinker situated in his times with an ever-present contemporary relevance.' - Professor Bob Jessop, University of Lancaster, UK

Summary expansion
Antonio Gramsci remains one of the most influential political thinkers of the early twentieth century. Arrested and imprisoned by the Italian Fascist regime for his socialist activities in 1926, in the solitary and debilitating conditions of Mussolini's jail he penned one of the most startling works of social and political theory - the Prison Notebooks (1929-1935) - that continues to challenge, intrigue and inspire its readers to this day. This book brings together some of the world's leading scholars on Gramsci to provide an engaging and accessible account of the main ideas, themes and debates in his writings, and to critically explore their relevance for contemporary social and political theory. Among the key themes examined in the book are Gramsci's very influential accounts of state formation, hegemony and ideology, which are explored in relation to contemporary Marxism, the liberal tradition, democratic theory, subaltern studies and post-Marxism
