    DescriptionThis is a book-length conversational dialogue between influential Italian Marxist political philosopher Antonio Negri and Cesare Casarino, a professor of cultural studies and comparative literature at the U. of Minnesota and coeditor of Marxism beyond Marxism. The interview ranges across the formation of Negri's political and philosophical commitments from the 1950s to the 1960s; engagement with recent examples of Negri's authored and co-authored works, including Empire and Multitude: War and Democracy in the Age of Empire; contemplation of the location of Negri with regards to other contemporary philosophical figures, including those he has explicitly engaged, such as Gilles Deluze, Félix Guattari, Giorgio Agamben, and Michel Foucault, and others one might not associate with his writings, including Antonio Gramsci, Walter Benjamin, Theodor Adorno, and Jacque Lacan. The volume concludes with two essays, one by Negri on "the political monster," i.e. the power of the multitude, as the production and constitution of the common, and the other by Casarino, an "attempt to think a communist temporality" through a the staging of a confrontation between Agamben's and Negri's different articulations of revolutionary time.
