Product Details


“Every generation of revolutionary anti-capitalists has to come to terms with how to read afresh the classic formulations of Marx and Lenin in ways appropriate to the conditions of their times. How Tronti and some of his close colleagues did this in the 1960s is a spectacular and inspirational example of how to re-theorize class formation and the practices of class struggle from a ground-up and workerist perspective. While our contemporary world may be very different, there is much to be learned not only conceptually but also methodologically from Tronti’s brilliant and incisive interventions at all levels in the politics of his era.​”
—David Harvey

“Tronti’s analyses of capital and the potential to overthrow it, which provided a beacon for generations of Italian radicals, have lost none of their power today. All those who struggle within and against capitalist society will find here a treasure of new insights and weapons.”
—Michael Hardt, co-author of Assembly

“In the early 1970s I read Tronti religiously.”
—Silvia Federici, author of Caliban and the Witch

Workers and Capital is not a mere period curiosity, but a fundamental work, like Lukacs’ History and Class Consciousness, and—dare I say?—one that now finds a new relevance in the hyper-Fordism of contemporary China.”
—Mike Davis, author of City of Quartz

“Tronti was the first and one of the most original and influential theoreticians of the historical moment of the radical left in post-war Italy and it is essential to have his works accessible in English.”
—Fredric Jameson, author of Postmodernism, or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism

“Tronti’s Workers and Capital remains a solid basis for researching this new capitalist terrain.”
—Antonio Negri, author (with Michael Hardt) of Empire

“Those who, like Marx, believe that the critique of political economy realises its true potential when it becomes an instrument in the class struggle will find this book an indispensable weapon.”
—Asad Haider, author of Mistaken Identity

—Alberto Toscano, author of Fanaticism: On the Uses of an Idea

“A message in a bottle finally getting ashore.”
—Tim Christiaens, Marx & Philosophy
