This biography lifts the study of Gramsci out of the sterile search for orthodoxy or heresy and instead examines Gramsci's personality in its full moral and intellectual complexity. Davidson has succeeded in integrating the circumstances of Gramsci's life: the childhood in Sardinia, the politics of the Italian left in the 1920s, the years of exile and prison - with his developing political and philosophical ideas.
