Gramsci's Politics, Hardback Book


First published in 1980. This book analyses Gramsci's political theory and the consequences of his ideas for the theory of the state and of the political party.

Using the new tools of analysis which have been developed in Italy the book presents Gramsci's political theory as part of the attempt to develop further a Marxist theory of politics.

The book also serves as a basis for considering the theoretical foundations of political developments such as Eurocommunism and the author argues that Gramsci's political thought provides useful instruments for both a critique of Stalinism and of social democracy and offers a grounding for conceptualising democratic forms of socialism which did not simply reinforce the State.

This title will be of interest to students of politics, philosophy, and history.
