Overview

Many people across the world know Antonio Negri as an internationally renowned political thinker whose book, Empire, co-authored with Michael Hardt, is an international bestseller.

Much less well known is the fact that, up until 1979, Negri was a university professor teaching in Paris and Padua. On 7 April 1979 he was arrested, charged with the murder of Italian politician Aldo Moro, accused of seventeen other murders, of being the head of the Red Brigades and of fomenting insurrection against the state. He has since been absolved of all these accusations, but, thanks to the emergency laws in Italy at the time, he was sentenced to thirty years in prison. Then, in July 1983, he was elected as a member of parliament, which meant that he was released from prison after four and a half years of preventive detention. After months of debate, the Lower House decided to strip him of his parliamentary immunity - by 300 votes in favour and 293 against. At that point he left Italy for exile in France where he remained until 1997 and continued to maintain his innocence of all the crimes of which he was accused.

This book is Negri's diary in which he tells of his imprisonment, trial, the elections, and his escape to and exile in France. Both personal and political, it recounts a little-known aspect of Negri's life and will be of great interest to anyone concerned with the work of this enormously influential political thinker.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"At once a narration of philosophy, politics and personal memoir.The experience of the oppressed political prisoner divests thecourts of their own web of rationality, exposing the system whichupholds the semblance of justice."
Irish Left Review

"No one who seeks to comment on global capitalism or themovements opposing it can afford to ignore Negri. He remains one ofEurope's few truly public intellectuals."
Katharine Ainger, The New Statesman (The NewStatesman list of 12 great thinkers of our time)

"A guru of the post-modern left."
Slavoj Zizek

"One of the most important thinkers of our time."
Fredric Jameson
