Gramsci, Historical Materialism And International Relations (cambridge Studies In International Relations)

The essays amassed right here relate the writings of Antonio Gramsci and others to the fresh reconstruction of historic materialist theories of world family members. The participants analyse the contradiction between globalising and territorially-based social and political forces within the context of previous, provide and long term international orders, and look at the rising international order as present process a structural transformation, a ‘triple disaster’ involving financial, political and ‘socio-cultural’ exchange. The prevailing pattern of the 1980s and early 1990s towards the marketisation and commodification of social family members leads the participants to argue that socialism must be redefined clear of the totalising visions related to Marxism-Leninism, against the speculation of the self-defence of society and social option to counter the disintegrating and atomising results of globalising and unplanned marketplace forces.
