They are a very attractive set, well presented in a nice slip case that make for an intresting and aesthetically pleasing addition to a set of bookshelves, though the temptation just to sit and look at them should not get in the way of actually taking them down and giving them their due attention- while style may be impressive, it cannot be allowed to overshadow content (especially relevant in relation to the study of Gramsci!) and it does not here.
I've read a lot of Marxist stuff and this is one of the best books I've found, especially in its sensitivity to the issue of everyday life. If you don't like Marxism you might not like it, and there's some annoyingly elitist bits sneak through at times, but this shouldn't stop you exploring Gramsci's very original theorising.
Gramsci was on of the foremost leaders of the Italian Communist Party; in his trial in 1927 the fascist Public Prosecutor proclaimed that his brain must be stopped from functioning for twenty years. Fortunately, Gramsci proved to be a devoted fighter in prison and his Notebooks furthered -in many points- the analysis of Marx and Lenin of how capitalism functions and how it could be overthrown.
