Empire by Michael Hardt( Book )

129 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in 17 languages and held by 2,890 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( )

35 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 2,090 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."--Jacket

Time for revolution by Antonio Negri( )

32 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,063 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."--Jacket
In praise of the common : a conversation on philosophy and politics by Cesare Casarino( )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Praise of the Common, which began as a conversation between Negri and literary critic Cesar

Spinoza for our time : politics and postmodernity by Antonio Negri( )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antonio Negri, a leading scholar on Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677) and his contemporary legacy, offers a straightforward explanation of the philosopher's elaborate arguments and a persuasive case for his ongoing utility.

Labor of Dionysus : a critique of the state-form by Michael Hardt( )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 834 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

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

40 editions published between 1979 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 497 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
The savage anomaly : the power of Spinoza's metaphysics and politics by Antonio Negri( Book )

16 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this essential rereading of Spinoza's (1632-1677) philosophical and political writings, Negri positions this thinker within the historical context of the development of the modern state and its attendant political economy. Through a close examination of Spinoza, Negri reveals him as unique among his contemporaries for his nondialectical approach to social organization in a bourgeois age

Assembly by Michael Hardt( Book )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years 'leaderless' social movements have proliferated around the globe, from North Africa and the Middle East to Europe, the Americas, and East Asia. Some of these movements have led to impressive gains: the toppling of authoritarian leaders, the furthering of progressive policy, and checks on repressive state forces. They have also been, at times, derided by journalists and political analysts as disorganized and ineffectual, or suppressed by disoriented and perplexed police forces and governments who fail to effectively engage them. Activists, too, struggle to harness the potential of these horizontal movements. Why have the movements, which address the needs and desires of so many, not been able to achieve lasting change and create a new, more democratic and just society? Some people assume that if only social movements could find new leaders they would return to their earlier glory. Where, they ask, are the new Martin Luther Kings, Rudi Dutschkes, and Stephen Bikos? With the rise of right-wing political parties in many countries, the question of how to organize democratically and effectively has become increasingly urgent. Although today's leaderless political organizations are not sufficient, a return to traditional, centralized forms of political leadership is neither desirable nor possible. Instead, as Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri argue, familiar roles must be reversed: leaders should be responsible for short-term, tactical action, but it is the multitude that must drive strategy. In other words, if these new social movements are to achieve meaningful revolution, they must invent effective modes of assembly and decision-making structures that rely on the broadest democratic base. Drawing on ideas developed through their well-known Empire trilogy, Hardt and Negri have produced, in Assembly, a timely proposal for how current large-scale horizontal movements can develop the capacities for political strategy and decision-making to effect lasting and democratic change. We have not yet seen what is possible when the multitude assembles"--Inside jacket

Empire and beyond by Antonio Negri( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In April 2003, after twenty-four years spent in conditions of imprisonment, exile, and constraint, Negri was finally granted a passport. This gave him the opportunity to travel worldwide and to test the political theory which had given rise to his bestselling volume Empire, co-authored with Michael Hardt. This new book, Empire and Beyond, brings together texts in which Negri explores and elaborates the revolutionary ideas that underpin his social and political theory. He examines, among other things, the political movements that are emerging today to challenge and resist the power of Empire; the hegemony of immaterial labour; and the subjective and objective conditions of social transformation in our contemporary postmodern world. Each of these texts, delivered as speeches to audiences around the world, gives Negri the opportunity to test his ideas with politically committed audiences with a view to developing theory further -- a continuous and exciting process of critique and renewal." -- back cover
