Book Description
In the last twenty years Antonio Gramsci has become a major presence
in British and American anthropology, especially for anthropologists
working on issues of culture and power. This book explores Gramsci's
understanding of culture and the links between culture and power.
Kate Crehan makes extensive use of Gramsci's own writings, including
his preprison journalism and prison letters as well as the prison
notebooks. Gramsci, Culture and Anthropology also provides an account
of the intellectual and political contexts within which he was
writing. Crehan examines the challenge that Gramsci's approach poses
to common anthropological assumptions about the nature of "culture"
as well as the potential usefulness of Gramsci's writings for
contemporary anthropologists. --This text refers to the Hardcover
