A philosophical work published in 1908 by the French revolutionary syndicalist Georges Sorel. Sorel argues that the success of the proletariat in class struggle depended on the creation of a catastrophic and violent revolution achieved through a general strike. Many of the ideas within would later influence fascists and as well as socialists. This version was translated and edited by Jeremy Jennings for the 'Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought' series (pub. 1999).
Almost five hundred pages of Gramsci's writings on history, culture, politics, and philosophy. From the study of philosophy to problems of Marx, Marxism, and Machiavelli, to the state and civil society. We have huge disagreements with Gramsci's (essentially Stalinist) politics, but reproduce this text for reference.
