summary
Antonio Gramsci was the twentieth century’s most original and wide-ranging Marxist thinker. His writing, particularly the Prison Notebooks, has been hugely influential on left thinking. The flexibility of his approach has helped to rescue Marxist thinking from the determinism and economic reductionism to which it has sometimes been reduced and his creative use of terms such as hegemony, civil society and historic block has added a new dimension to political vocabulary. The fragmentary nature of the Gramsci’s notebooks has meant it has not always been easy to grasp the significance of his ideas. This book, with an introductory essay by Stuart Hall, provides an account of Gramsci’s work which makes his writing accessible and comprehensible for everyone.
