Written in prison two decades apart, these two essays reflect Antonio Negris abiding interest in the philosophy of time and resistance. The first essay traces the fracture lines that force capitalist society into perpetual crisis. The second, written immediately after the global bestseller, Empire, develops 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?

Review quote

'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.' New Statesman; 'We discover here another Negri, a Negri deeply immersed in a philosophical, even a theological problematic. This book is a Must: it provides the proper background for Negri's widely circulated analysis of the global capitalist Empire.' Slavoj Zizek; 'Time for Revolution constitutes a major philosophical statement by one of the most important thinkers of our time.' Fredric Jameson
