The notebooks kept by Antonio Gramsci while he was in prison in fascist Italy in the 1920s have been an inspiration to Marxist political thinkers and activists around the world for decades. With Using Gramsci, Michele Filippini teases out a number of previously ignored aspects of Gramsci’s works to create a book that stands apart from previous analyses. While Filippini does examine the aspects of Gramsci’s thought that have long attracted scholars—including his thinking on hegemony, organic intellectuals, and civil society—she foregrounds new concepts, including the individual, crisis, and space and time. The result is a rethinking of Gramsci for our era  that offers a number of promising new ways forward.

Review Quotes
Cosimo Zene, University of London, and editor of The Political Philosophies of Antonio Gramsci
''There is little doubt that Gramsci has become one of the most relevant thinkers of the 20th century influencing many fields of contemporary scholarship. Fillippini’s Using Gramsci is a tribute to this. While the author is very attentive not to trivialise Gramsci’s thought - so deeply rooted in a precise historical setting - he invites the reader to find inspiration in Gramsci’s writings when facing pressing issues, including current experiences of  ‘crisis’.''
