Product Overview

"In the crowded field of Gramsci studies, this is a gem of rare beauty. It provides an English readership with a wide-ranging introduction to an important set of insights. The contributors are the key figures in this debate, and, together, they productively highlight the role of arguments about language, philology, and translation for understanding Gramsci's working methods and his theoretical and political conclusions. This book will enable readers to gain a better understanding of Gramsci's place in Italian culture and politics. I recommend this text wholeheartedly."---Bob Jessop, Lancaster University

"Expertly edited by Peter Ives and Rocco Lacorte, Gramsci, Language, and Translation gathers the rigorous and provocative inquiries of an impressive array of international scholars crossing the traditional boundaries of political science, sociology, linguistics, translation studies, history, and so on. It's a historic event that, by way of opening up the Gramscian/Marxist canon, promises to renew critical thinking on the problems of global political economy while implicitly engaging protagonists in the urgent controversies on justice, human rights, religion, terrorism, race, ethnicity, immigration, and the post-9/11 `culture wars.' A major scholarly achievement and an extremely valuable tool for the civic intelligence of our troubled times."---E. San Juan Jr., W. E. B. Du Bois Institute, Harvard University; director of the Philippines Cultural Studies Center, Connecticut

"A significant body of scholarship already exists that illuminates the manner in which Gramsci's views on language and translation inform his analyses of the relationship between politics and culture. Yet Anglophone readers have remained generally unaware of this very important dimension of Gramsci's thinking and writing, even though it features prominently in his elaboration of such key concepts as hegemony, common sense, and subalternity. Peter Ives and Rocco Lacorte provide the perfect remedy by gathering in a single volume the seminal essays on the topic, including previously untranslated contributions by Tullio De Mauro, Franco Lo Piparo, Utz Maas, Derek Boothman, and Francisco F. Buey. Together with the recent publication of Gramsci's translated notebooks, this timely volume will invigorate discussions on the intersections of language, politics, and culture."---Joseph A. Buttigieg, University of Notre Dame
