    DescriptionLeading Marxist thinker Negri is not afraid to ask the difficult questions of the post-Communist age: What should a new left agenda consist of? Where does globalization fit? How does the left make a valid political contribution in the face of centre politics? In "Goodbye Mr Socialism", he retraces the changes since 1989: the birth of Zapatism, the emergence of anti-globalization movements, employment crises and beyond.In these interviews witih Raf Valvolva Scelsi, Negri takes stock of leftist movements past and present. As the doctrines of traditional Marxism have been rendered obsolete, Negri attempts to address what it is to be leftwing today, and asks whether anything has changed to invalidate the need for a radical approach to society and politics.

    Author Information
    Antonio Negri was born in Padua in 1933. He is one of the world's leading experts on Marxism and was crucial in elaborating the theories of "workerism", and in founding the political groups "Potere operaio" and "Autonomia operaia." He was arrested in 1979 and accused of being part of the Red Brigades. He was then found guilty of being "morally responsible" for the existence of the group. An exile in France for 14 years, Negri returned to Italy in 1997.
