with a new introduction by ERIC J. HOBSBAWM "Very usefully pulls the key passages from Gramsci's writings into one volume, which allows English-language readers an overall view of his work. Particularly valuable are the connections it draws across his work and the insights which the introduction and glossary provide into the origin and development of some key Gramscian concepts." --Stuart Hall, Professor of Sociology, Open University The most complete one-volume collection of writings by one of the most fascinating thinkers in the history of Marxism, The Antonio Gramsci Reader fills the need for a broad and general introduction to this major figure. Antonio Gramsci was one of the most important theorists of class, culture, and the state since Karl Marx. In the U.S., where his writings were long unavailable, his stature has lately so increased that every serious student of Marxism, political theory, or modern Italian history must now read him. Imprisoned by the Fascists for much of his adult life, Gramsci wrote brilliantly on a broad range of subjects: from folklore to philosophy, popular culture to political strategy. Still the most comprehensive collection of Gramsci's writings available in English, it now features a new introduction by leading Marxist historian Eric Hobsbawm, in addition to its biographical introduction, informative introductions to each section, and glossary of key terms.

(Very usefully pulls the key passages from Gramsci's writings into one volume, which allows English-language readers an overall view of his work.

Very usefully pulls the key passages from Gramsci's writings into one volume, which allows English-language readers an overall view of his work. Particularly valuable are the connections it draws across his work and the insights which the introduction and glossary provide into the origin and development of some key Gramscian concepts."-Stuart Hall,

"In this vigorously argued and controversial study, Hannan Hever applies the insights of post-colonial theory to the case of modern Hebrew literature, which began as the writing of an imagined national community in Eastern Europe and went on to become a majority literature in Israel. Hever's erudition and conceptual powers are never less than impressive."-Alan Mintz, Brandeis University

"Since the late eighties, Hever's critical project has outlined for me not only the way I read modern Hebrew literature but also the way I read my own writing against that literature. This book not only offers a brilliant, insightful, and unsettling contemplation on the role of literary canonization and minority discourse in the construction of national imagination, but, above all, an appositional voice whose critical stance is bound to inform the work of a new generation of Hebrew scholars."-Anton Shammas, University of Michigan

"[Hever] offers an alternative reading of the historiography of Hebrew literature and of major narratives in it." -"Reference & Research Book News",
