Promotional Information

This is the first time ever that Gramsci's extraordinary Prison Notebooks are available in English as he wrote them in italian, in their fragemntary brilliance and their disconcertingly restless, unorthodox probity. Joseph Buttigieg's work is a monument of scholarship and of supple, deeply sensitive translation. When his work is completed in subsequent volumes a remarkable monument of human courage and intellectual resourcefulness will stand forth as never before. -- Edward W. Said Until Joseph A. Buttigieg's meticulous translation and critical attention to Antonio Gramsci's Prison Notebooks, this invaluable text, a testimony to the most emancipatory thinking of our time, was available to English readers only in an artificially contrived form. Now Buttigieg's monumental and magesterial work is available in paperback. Scholars, teachers, students, activists, general readers--rejoice! -- Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Columbia University A poignant record of [Gramsci's] thoughts from a Fascist prison cell, adding a human touch to a key political figure. -- Terry Eagleton Prison Notebooks is one of the fundamental texts of modern thought. Politics, cultural studies, philosophy, history, the dialectic--everything is here. Buttigieg's translation is a superb achievement." -- Fredric Jameson
