Antonio Gramsci was one of the 20th century's most remarkable Marxists. He lived through an helped shape the titanic struggles of the workers of Turin during and after the First World War. Gramsci became the intellectual driving force of early Italian communism.
Jailed by the fascist dictator, Mussolini, and with collapsing health, Gramsci laboured to produce his famous prison notebooks. Here, under the eye of fascist censors, he reflected on revolutionary strategy and organisation. These ideas still have much to offer us today.
Chris Bambery provides an accessible and lively introduction to the man, his world, and his ideas.
