New Book - Multitude

Michael Hardt & Antonio Negri
Multitude: war and democracy in the age of empire

Penguin, 2006, 321.8 HAR

In their previous book Empire, Michael Hardt & Antonio Negri argued that modern globalization has created a new social and political order that constitutes a new form of empire. By colonizing and interconnecting more areas of life ever more deeply, this empire has now created the possibility for a revolutionary kind of democracy. This is the thesis put forward by Hardt & Negri in their latest book Multitude, a work of socio-political idealism that is simultaneously grounded by a fierce intellectuality, creating a powerful vision of a truly democratic future that seems genuinely achievable. Multitude is a book of great significance among left wing scholarship, and consolidates the stature of its authors as two of the world's most important political philosophers.
