Empire by Michael Hardt( Book )

83 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in 10 languages and held by 1,978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Imperialism as we knew it may be no more, but Empire is alive and well. It is, as Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri demonstrate in this bold work, the new political order of globalization. Their book shows how this emerging Empire is fundamentally different from the imperialism of European dominance and capitalist expansion in previous eras. Rather, Today's Empire draws on elements of U.S. constitutionalism, with its tradition of hybrid identities and expanding frontiers." "Empire identifies a radical shift in concepts that form the philosophical basis of modern politics, concepts such as sovereignty, nation, and people. Hardt and Negri link this philosophical transformation to cultural and economic changes in postmodern society - to new forms of racism, new conceptions of identity and difference, new networks of communication and control, and new paths of migration. They also show how the power of transnational corporations and the increasing predominance of postindustrial forms of labor and production help to define the new imperial global order." "More than analysis, Empire is also work of political philosophy, a new Communist Manifesto. Looking beyond the regimes of exploitation and control that characterize today's world order, it seeks an alternative political paradigm - the basis for a truly democratic global society."--Jacket
Commonwealth by Michael Hardt( )

24 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now, with Commonwealth, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri conclude the trilogy begun with Empire and continued in Multitude, proposing an ethics of freedom for living in our common world and articulating a possible constitution for our common wealth. Drawing on scenarios from around the globe and elucidating the themes that unite them, Hardt and Negri focus on the logic of institutions and the models of governance adequate to our understanding of a global commonwealth. They argue for the idea of the "common" to replace the opposition of private and public and the politics predicated on that opposition. Ultimately, they articulate the theoretical bases for what they call "governing the revolution." Though this book functions as an extension and a completion of a sustained line of Hardt and Negri's thought, it also stands alone and is entirely accessible to readers who are not familiar with the previous works. It is certain to appeal to, challenge, and enrich the thinking of anyone interested in questions of politics and globalization." -- Book jacket

Time for revolution by Antonio Negri( )

21 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 1,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Time for Revolution explores the burning issue of our times: is there still a place for resistance in a society utterly subsumed by capitalism?" "Written in prison two decades apart, these two essays reflect Antonio Negri's abiding interest in the philosophy of time and resistance. The first essay traces the fracture lines which force capitalist society into perpetual crisis. The second, written immediately after the global bestseller, Empire, develops the two key concepts of empire and multitude." "Time for Revolution illuminates the course of Negri's thinking from the 1980s to Empire and beyond."--BOOK JACKET
In praise of the common a conversation on philosophy and politics by Cesare Casarino( )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A leading Marxist political philosopher and intellectual firebrand, Antonio Negri has inspired anti-empire movements around the world through his writings and personal example.

In 1997, he voluntarily returned to Italy to serve out his seventeen-year prison sentence. He was freed in 2003. In Praise of the Common, which began as a conversation between Negri and literary critic Cesar

Marx beyond Marx : lessons on the Grundrisse by Antonio Negri( Book )

25 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In questo volume, che è ormai un classico della teoria marxista contemporanea, l'autore di "Impero" si confronta con l'opera più inquieta e anticipatrice di Karl Marx, i "Grundrisse". A partire da questo testo Negri dipana i molti fili che lì si annodano: critica dell'economia politica, formazione della soggettività rivoluzionaria, applicazione della scienza alla produzione, transizione al comunismo. Ma nel laboratorio marxiano l'autore scopre numerosi spunti che portano "oltre Marx", o meglio oltre le idee consolidate e rassicuranti di molti "marxisti". L'ipotesi di fondo è che lo stesso Marx provochi spesso e volentieri la crisi del marxismo e indichi perfino qualche strada per superarla. Le riflessioni di Negri anticipano la centralità e il significato dell'autore dei "Grundrisse" in una prospettiva che si spinge ben oltre il socialismo e la sua storia degli ultimi due secoli

Factory of strategy : thirty-three lessons on Lenin by Antonio Negri( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Factory of Strategy is the last of Antonio Negri's major political works to be translated into English. Rigorous and accessible, it is both a systematic inquiry into the development of Lenin's thought and an encapsulation of a critical shift in Negri's theoretical trajectory. Lenin is the only prominent politician of the modern era to seriously question the?withering away" and?extinction" of the state, and like Marx, he recognized the link between capitalism and modern sovereignty and the need to destroy capitalism and reconfigure the state. Negri refrains from portraying Lenin a
