Storming Heaven: Class Composition and Struggle in Italian Autonomist Marxism

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is a comprehensive survey of Italian autonomist theory, from its origins in the anti-Stalinist and workerist left of the 1950s to its heyday 20 years later. Autonomist Marxism was a political tendency which priviledged themes - self-organization, construction of identity, grassroots politics, subjects in struggle - which in many ways can be seen as the precurser of debates around social movements and popular direct action protest. Emphasizing the dynamic nature of class struggle as the distinguishing feature of autonomist thought, Wright explores the manner in which its understanding of class politics developed alongside emerging social movements.;Offering a critical and historical exploration of the tendency's emergence in postwar Italy, this book aims o move beyond the crisis of traditional analytical frameworks on the left, and assesses the strengths and limitations of autonomist marxism as first developed by Antonio Negri, Mario Tronti, Sergio Bologna and others.
