Adam David Morton, a senior lecturer at the University of Nottingham, says that our book, Antonio Gramsci: Working-Class Revolutionary is “straight onto the reading list of [his] third-year ‘Gramsci & Global Politics’ module”.

Murray Kane, Australian socialist activist, said: “Although only 70 pages long, [it] is remarkable in containing more insights than many a full length book on Gramsci.”

British socialist activist Richard Price wrote: “This pamphlet ... can not only stimulate discussion upon the philosophical aspects of Gramsci’s thought, but it can also force socialists to think more deeply about their relationship to the rest of society, and how to transform it.”

Peter Thomas, the author of The Gramscian Moment and winner of the Fondazione Istituto Piemontese Antonio Gramsci’s Premio internazionale Giuseppe Sormani Prize in 2011, spoke at the book’s launch and praised the book’s contribution to the field of Gramsci scholarship.

We were able to publish and distribute this book because of the financial support we received from readers of Solidarity. With more such support, we can publish more books.

In 2013, we plan to publish a collection of the writings of American socialist Max Shachtman on the ideas of Leon Trotsky, again developing the real legacy of a revolutionary theorist whose work is obscured not only by his own eventual political mistakes but by the distortions of a hostile orthodoxy.
