From the Publisher"Murphy's book provides a thorough and thoughtful engagement with Negri's work, covering everything from the early works on Hegel and Kant to the recent political debates on Empire. Besides covering works that have yet to be translated into English, its principal strength is the way in which it synthesizes politics and philosophy, demonstrating how Negri engages politics through philosophy and vice versa. It is no exaggeration to say that this book will fundamentally change the debate on Negri's work."
Jason Read, University of Southern Maine
"Sympathetic but not uncritical, carefully exploring the interplay of text and context, Tim Murphy's book promises to become the standard introduction to this exciting and controversial thinker."
Steve Wright, Monash University
"Murphy's book is remarkable, at once an overview of Negri's work while also providing a detailed analysis of its mainsprings. There has been nothing like this book, written in English of course, but with a mastery of the Italian source material, and with an ear deeply attuned to the thought of a truly great and creative Marxist thinker."
Kenneth Surin, Duke University
