in places a brilliant book. in places unless you are down with the intellecual - political scene in late 1800s early 1900s mussolini era, a lot of this will go over your head - well it did go over mine. Gramshe wrote this collection of his notes whilst in prison over about a 8 year period and its essentially a collection of his intellectual musings on a whole variery of topics from Islam, to mussololini, to gabriele d'anunzio to americanism and christianity. incredibly detailed book and very intellectual. it took me about 30 pages or so to get into his style. he also talks about creating an individal that in combine intelectual philosophical political and social characterstics and act not just talk about acting. his theroy of cultural hegemony is fascinating.
