Overview

Four men in a cell in Rebibbia prison, Rome, awaiting trial onserious charges of subversion. One of them, the political thinkerAntonio Negri, spends his days writing. Among his writings aretwenty letters addressed to a young friend in France letters inwhich Negri reflects on his own personal development as aphilosopher, theorist and political activist and analyses theevents, activities and movements in which he has been involved. Theletters recount an existential journey that links a rigorousphilosophical education with a powerful political passion, setagainst the historical backdrop of postwar Italy. Crucially, Negrirecalls the pivotal moment in 1978 when the former prime ministerof Italy, Aldo Moro, was kidnapped and killed by the Red Brigades,and how the institutions then pinned that killing onto him and hisassociates.

Published here for the first time, these letters offer a uniqueand invaluable insight into the factors that shaped the thinking ofone of the most influential political theorists of our time andthey document Negri’s role in the development of politicalmovements like Autonomia. They are a vivid testimony to oneman’s journey through the political upheavals andintellectual traditions of the late 20th century, in the course ofwhich he produced a body of work that has had, and continues tohave, a profound impact on radical thought and politics around theworld.
