Antonio Gramsci was one of the 20th century's most remarkable Marxists. Gramsci was the intellectual driving force of early Italian Communism. Jailed by the fascist dictator, Mussolini, and with collapsing heath, he laboured to produce his famous "Prison Notebooks" under the eye of the censor. His ideas, above all his concept of 'hegemony', are still highly influential today. Chris Bambery provides an accessible and lively introduction to the man, his world and his ideas. This is the latest in the popular "Rebel's Guide" series.
