Review Text

"Alison Ayers has brought together a group of serious scholars to probe some of the most intriguing themes raised by the use of Antonio Gramsci's ideas within IPE and IR theory today. It will need to become required reading for everyone who believes that Gramsci remains relevant today, but that his work also demands a critical engagement if we are to benefit from its use." - Randall Germain, Professor of Political Science, Carleton University

"Gramsci, Political Economy and International Relations Theory is a lively, engaging and thought-provoking set of essays. Ayers and her collaborators take forward the debates raised by the application of Gramsci to International Relations and thus make a valuable contribution to contemporary critical International Relations/International Political Economy scholarship. This is an indispensable text for students of critical IR and critical IPE." - Marc Williams, Professor of International Relations, University of New South Wales.
