Book Description

20 Feb 2007
‘Powerful and clarifying ... The book’s combination of careful argument and cogent illustration will make this a landmark volume in Gramscian studies.’ John Agnew, University of California, Los Angeles, and author of Hegemony: The New Shape of Global Power

‘Morton draws upon an impressive knowledge of Gramsci’s writings to provide new insights into key processes in today’s world order.’ Anne Showstack Sassoon, Emeritus Professor, Kingston University and Visiting Professor, Birkbeck College, University of London

Unravelling Gramsci makes extensive use of Antonio Gramsci’s writings, including his much-overlooked pre-prison journalism, prison letters, as well as his prison notebooks, to provide a fresh approach to understanding his contemporary relevance in the current neoliberal world order. Adam Morton examines in detail the themes of hegemony, passive revolution and uneven development to provide a useful way of analysing the contemporary global political economy, the project of neoliberalism, processes of state formation, and practices of resistance. The book explores the theoretical and practical limitations of how Gramsci’s ideas can be used today, offering a broad insight into state formation and the international factors shaping hegemony within a capitalist framework.

Product Description

Review

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. (Anne Showstack Sassoon, Emeritus Professor of Politics, Kingston University and Visiting Professor of Politics, Birkbeck, University of London)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for those already knowledgeable 29 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback
This book is extremely well written and researched. It is, however, an academic book, and not suitable for a lay reader or someone new to neo-gramscian politics. Other books maybe a better starting point, although once you get your head around the jargon it is very easy to understand (some awareness of other relavent literature would be helpful in reading the book, but not essential).

The book is split into two halves, the first historicising Gramsci and extracting the Gramscian way of thinking. The second half is applying a gramscian way of thinking to the contemporary era.

As i have said the book is very well written, and perfect for someone like myself who has studied politics, but wants to enquire into this line of thinking and way of interogating the world. But as mentioned above it is not for the beginner, I guess it is aimed at undergraduate/masters level readers. It gives a very good overview of other authors, both neo-gramscian and critics, and so the bibliography is invlauable for the reader trying to engage more deeply with neo-gramscian thought.

4.0 out of 5 stars This book links Gramci to globalization, nowadays. 9 Jan 2013
By JOSE MILTON DOS SANTOS PESTANA BARBOSA - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's mandatory to read Gramsci to understand midia and public opinion manipulation, neoliberalism as a hegemony and the financial capital suprmacy, nowadays.
