Subalternity, Antagonism, Autonomy: Constructing the Political Subject

Subalternity, Antagonism, Autonomy: Constructing the Political Subject Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this bold and innovative book, Massimo Modonesi weaves together theory and political practice by relating the concepts of subalternity, antagonism and autonomy to contemporary movements in Latin America and elsewhere.

In a sophisticated account, Modonesi reconstructs the debates between Marxist authors and schools of thought in order to sketch out informed strategies of resistance. He reviews the works of Gramsci, Negri, Castoriadis and Lefort, and engages with the arguments made by E. P. Thompson, Spivak, Laclau and Mouffe.

Subalternity, Antagonism, Autonomy firmly roots key theoretical arguments from a range of critical thinkers within specific political movements in order to recover these concepts as analytical instruments which can help to guide contemporary struggles.

Synopsis:

A practical guide to the growing influence of women on parliamentary legislation across the Commonwealth, and includes a study of how women's rights are promoted.

About the Author

Massimo Modonesi is a Professor in the Political and Social Sciences Faculty of the National Autonomous University of Mexico. He is also the Director of the Social Sciences Latino-American Council (CLACSO) and Co-coordinator of the Mexico Social Conflict Analysis Committee.
