A powerful and clarifying argument for why Antonio Gramsci’s theorising of uneven development has major uses that can only be adequately understood in application rather than in terms of textual exegesis. The book’s combination of careful argument and cogent illustration will make this a landmark volume in Gramscian studies. (John Agnew, UCLA (author of Hegemony: The New Shape of Global Power, 2005).)
Giving prominence to the often neglected concept of passive revolution, and engaging with debates about uneven development and the relationship between national and international perspectives, Adam Morton draws upon an impressive knowledge of Antonio Gramsci’s writings to provide new insights into key processes in today’s world order.
