"This edited collection is a beacon of critical engagement with Gramsci's philosophical and theoretical work and his political practice. This could be expected from the co-editors, each of whom has already critically appropriated and applied Gramsci's ideas, and they have now added 12 impressive contributors to their number … This is an important contribution to the urgent critical work of recovering, appropriating and recontextualizing Gramsci's concepts, methods and analyses, and, above all, 'translating' them for the current conjuncture, in which issues of political ecology as well as political economy are ever more critical to human flourishing."

"A book that has just landed on my desk is the fantastic volume edited by Michael Ekers, Gillian Hart, Stefan Kipfer and Alex Loftus entitled Gramsci: Space, Nature, Politics ... My hope is that this intervention and the outstanding chapters from all the additional contributors in the book will provoke renewed debate on space, nature, and politics in and beyond Gramsci!"  (Adam Morton,, 13 November 2012)
