Gramsci and Languages: Unification, Diversity, Hegemony, Leiden: Brill, 2013, 256
Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937) is one of the most translated Italian authors of all time. After the Second World War his thought became increasingly influential, and remained relevant throughout the second half of the century. Today, it is generally agreed that his Marxism has highly original and personal features, as confirmed by the fact that his international influence has continued to grow since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Gramsci and Languages offers an explanation of this originality and traces the origins of certain specific features of Gramsci's political thought by looking at his lifelong interest in language, especially in questions of linguistic diversity and unification.
