Reviews

'A great merit of Morera's book is that it does focus centrally on Gramsci's epistemology and on his relation to historicism. In doing so it also provides a clear and accessible guide to debates surrounding these questions in Gramsci's work and delivers one of the best available discussions of the various meanings of historicism in Gramsci's writings' - Ali Rattansi, The Open University
