Antonio Gramsci
Towards an Intellectual Biography
This engrossing political biography aims to lift Gramsci’s legacy out of the sterile debates that have endured since his death.
Few revolutionaries have a heritage so contested by rival groups as Antonio Gramsci. Many use his writings as ‘sacred texts’ for their own policies, and while others stress any differences with Lenin in order to prove Gramsci a ‘rebel.’ In this stirring biography, Davidson cuts through these sterile debates and instead focuses on Gramsci’s own political and philosophical ideas.
