Book Description Lawrence and Wishart, 1991. paperback. Condition: Very Good in Wrappers. London. 1991. Lawrence and Wishart. Reprinted Revised Paperback Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. ISBN:0853157383. Introductory essays by Stuart Hall. 143 pages. paperback. Cover design by Jan Brown Designs. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Antonio Gramsci (22 January 1891 27 April 1937) was an Italian Marxist theoretician and politician. He wrote on political theory, sociology and linguistics. He was a founding member and one-time leader of the Communist Party of Italy and was imprisoned by Benito Mussolini's Fascist regime. Gramsci is best known for his theory of cultural hegemony, which describes how states use cultural institutions to maintain power in capitalist societies. ANTONIO GRAMSCI is the twentieth century s most original and wide ranging Marxist thinker. His writing, particularly the Prison Notebooks, has been tremendously influential for the left; the flexibility of his approach has helped to rescue Marxist thinking from the determinism and economic reductionism to which it has often fallen prey. His creative use of terms such as hegemony, civil society and historical bloc has added a new dimension to political vocabulary. But the fragmentary and sometimes cryptic nature of the Notebooks means that it is not always easy to grasp the full significance of his ideas. This book, in a completely revised and updated edition, with an introductory essay by Stuart Hall, provides an introduction to Gramsci s work which makes his writing accessible and comprehensible for the contemporary reader. A political book in the best sense. explains the most important ideas from Gramsci s works in simple, straightforward language, considering their relevance for a left strategy in Britain. - Anne Showstack Sassoon, Tribune. A clear, coherent account of Gramsci s main writings. - Times Literary Supplement. A rigorous and polemical lifeline. distils from Gramsci s huge output the essence of his theoretical contribution. - Marxism Today. inventory #41638. Seller Inventory # z41638
