Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unravelling Gramsci makes extensive use of Antonio Gramscis writings, including his much-overlooked pre-prison journalism, prison letters, as well as his prison notebooks, to provide a fresh approach to understanding his contemporary relevance in the current neoliberal world order. Adam Morton examines in detail the themes of hegemony, passive revolution and uneven development to provide a useful way of analysing the contemporary global political economy, the project of neoliberalism, processes of state formation, and practices of resistance. The book explores the theoretical and practical limitations of how Gramscis ideas can be used today, offering a broad insight into state formation and the international factors shaping hegemony within a capitalist framework.

Synopsis:

Examines Gramscis understanding of hegemony within the context of uneven development and its links to the global political economy.
