The Antonio Gramsci Reader: Selected Writings 1916-1935
David Forgacs has produced a significant one-volume collection of most of the
important writings of Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937), a
political thinker who has gained great influence in recent years.
Forgacs stresses the "complexity and vitality" of Gramsci's views on
hegemony, war, art, education, and popular culture, as well as politics.
The book is divided into two parts--the first covers the period from
1916-26, the second comes from Gramsci's notebooks written while
imprisoned by the Fascists. Particularly valuable are the chapter
introductions and a glossary of key terms which facilitate an
understanding of Gramsci's philosophy.
