An illuminating examination of the role that the metaphors 'war of position' and 'war of maneuver' play in Gramsci's theory.

Military metaphors have long played a role in framing questions of Marxist political strategy. Most famously, Gramsci articulated much of his social theory in terms of wars of position and wars of maneuver. In this work, Daniel Egan argues that previous commentators have viewed the distinction between these two phases of struggle too statically.
