Overview

Time for Revolution

Time for Revolution explores the burning issue of our times: is there still a place for resistance in a society utterly subsumed by capitalism?

Written in prison two decades apart, these two essays reflect Negri's abiding interest in the philosophy of time and resistance. The first is a central work in Negri's oeuvre, tracing the fracture lines which force capitalist society into perpetual crisis. The second essay, written immediately after the global bestseller, Empire, provides a conceptual toolbox, deepening our understanding of the two key concepts of empire and multitude.
