An innovative new interpretation of Gramsci's thought and his place in the Marxist tradition.

Using a diachronic method of investigation, this work uncovers the origins and development of Gramsci’s core concepts. The first section analyzes the relation between structure and superstructure and the concepts of hegemony and the regulated society. The second investigates alternative conceptual pairings to structure-superstructure, encompassing questions of political and cultural organisation, and Gramsci's relation to Marx, Engels, and Lenin.
