Introduction to Antonio Gramsci, George Hoare, Nathan Sperber Paperback.
This is a concise introduction to the life and work of Italian journalist and militant, Antonio Gramsci. As head of the Italian Communist Party in the 1920s, Gramsci was arrested and condemned to 20 years' imprisonment by Mussolini's fascist regime. It was during this imprisonment that Gramsci wrote his famous Prison Notebooks ? over 2,000 pages of profound and influential reflections on history, culture, politics and revolution.

An Introduction to Antonio Gramsci retraces the trajectory of Gramsci's life, before examining his conception of culture, thought and cultural struggle. The book explores Gramsci's key political and philosophical notions whilst considering them in the wider historical context in which they were conceived. In a synoptic chapter, Gramsci's thought is interpreted through the lens of his most famous concept, that of 'hegemony'; the sources and tensions in Gramsci's understanding of hegemony are here discussed, along with Gramsci's contribution to historical methodology. The book concludes with a groundbreaking examination of Gramsci's legacy and a useful Guide to Further Reading section.

George Hoare and Nathan Sperber make Gramsci accessible for students of history, politics and philosophy keen to understand this seminal figure in 20th-century intellectual history.
