    I have the same copy you do, I believe.

    http://www.amazon.com/Selections-Pri...1678421&sr=8-1

    And yes, he wrote a lot. I believe in total they smuggled out 33 notebooks out from his cell to Moscow.

    In its heyday the Italian Communist Party maintained an extensive library of Marxist literature, and its centerpiece was a total collection of Gramsci's notebooks as well as his earlier works as a journalist for Avanti!, Ordine Nuovo, and L'Unita, which are also interesting from a historical standpoint.

    Unfortunately Gramsci leaving his works as they were with out him asserting exactly in what context he wished it to be read in, it opened up for some opportunistic elements in the Italian Communist Party to justify their "Eurocommunist" stance and by neoliberals as well.

    And thank you for paying attention to my post.

    The intro is very indepth. My copy has something about 79-80 (in the small typeset no less >_>) pages just going ad nauseum into not just Gramsci's life, but the political climate of Italy, the PCd'I, and the political strife within the Soviet Union and the Comintern, and how that reflected back onto the PCd'I.

    I did remember one book on Gramsci, but I did not bring it up because it has biases. It is written by Fiori (the same guy I mentioned in the post), called "Antonio Gramsci: The Life of a Revolutionary". He was a leftist journalist in Italy, and an independent Communist.

    Look, I've warned/given infractions to MG on many occasions (as per policy) and the admin team was well aware of his activity. I personally do not have much power in banning MG but I know I would've done it ages ago. I think that what made it less of a black-and-white decision to ban MG was the fact that he was a restricted user and I guess we expect a certain amount of bullshit from them.

    I know you were spoofing but IMO it's a bit immature and kind of a baiting thing. I may have been a bit rash in closing it instead of moving it into chit-chat, but I don't think that mocking other users is really anything that should be promoted on Revleft, so I closed the thread.

    To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget

    Arundhati Roy
