The two key essays by Antonio Negri brought together here for the first time were written in prison two decades apart. Time for Revolution illuminates the course of Negri's thinking from the 1980s to Empire and beyond. Time for Revolution reflects Negri's abiding interest in the philosophy of time and resistance. The first essay is a central work in Negri's oeuvre, tracing the fracture lines which force capitalist society into perpetual crisis. The second essay, written immediately after the global best-seller, Empire, provides a conceptual toolbox, deepening our understanding of the two key concepts of empire and multitude. Time for Revolution explores the burning issue of our times: is there still a place for resistance in a society utterly subsumed by capitalism?
"No one who seeks to comment on global capitalism or the movements opposing it can afford to ignore Negri. He remains one of Europe's few truly public intellectuals"
