Selections from the Prison Notebooks of Antonio Gramsci

Edited and introduced by Quintin Hoare and Geoffrey Nowell-Smith

Selections from the Prison Notebooks of Antonio GramsciAntonio Gramsci's Prison Notebooks, written between 1929 and 1935, are the work of one of the most original thinkers in twentieth century Europe. Gramsci has had a profound influence on debates about the relationship between politics and culture. His complex and fruitful approach to questions of ideology, power and change remains crucial for critical theory. This volume was the first selection published from the Notebooks to be made available in Britain, and was originally published in the early 1970s. It contains the most important of Gramsci's notebooks, including the texts of The Modern Prince, and Americanism and Fordism, and extensive notes on the state and civil society, Italian history and the role of intellectuals.

'Far the best informative apparatus available to any foreign language readership of Gramsci.' Perry Anderson, New Left Review

'A model of scholarship' New Statesman
