Product Description


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)

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mr. J. Horsfall on 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.

This book links Gramci to globalization, nowadays. 9 Jan. 2013
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.
