Empire by Michael Hardt( Book )

126 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in 15 languages and held by 2,940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Imperialism as we knew it may be no more, but Empire is alive and well. It is, as Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri demonstrate in this bold work, the new political order of globalization. Their book shows how this emerging Empire is fundamentally different from the imperialism of European dominance and capitalist expansion in previous eras. Rather, Today's Empire draws on elements of U.S. constitutionalism, with its tradition of hybrid identities and expanding frontiers." "Empire identifies a radical shift in concepts that form the philosophical basis of modern politics, concepts such as sovereignty, nation, and people. Hardt and Negri link this philosophical transformation to cultural and economic changes in postmodern society - to new forms of racism, new conceptions of identity and difference, new networks of communication and control, and new paths of migration. They also show how the power of transnational corporations and the increasing predominance of postindustrial forms of labor and production help to define the new imperial global order." "More than analysis, Empire is also work of political philosophy, a new Communist Manifesto. Looking beyond the regimes of exploitation and control that characterize today's world order, it seeks an alternative political paradigm - the basis for a truly democratic global society."--Jacket
Commonwealth by Michael Hardt( )

38 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 2,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now, with Commonwealth, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri conclude the trilogy begun with Empire and continued in Multitude, proposing an ethics of freedom for living in our common world and articulating a possible constitution for our common wealth. Drawing on scenarios from around the globe and elucidating the themes that unite them, Hardt and Negri focus on the logic of institutions and the models of governance adequate to our understanding of a global commonwealth. They argue for the idea of the "common" to replace the opposition of private and public and the politics predicated on that opposition. Ultimately, they articulate the theoretical bases for what they call "governing the revolution." Though this book functions as an extension and a completion of a sustained line of Hardt and Negri's thought, it also stands alone and is entirely accessible to readers who are not familiar with the previous works. It is certain to appeal to, challenge, and enrich the thinking of anyone interested in questions of politics and globalization."--Jacket

Gilles Deleuze : an apprenticeship in philosophy by Michael Hardt( Book )

33 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gilles Deleuze moriva il 4 novembre 1995. In quegli stessi giorni, durante uno degli scioperi più lunghi che la Francia ricordi, sui muri di una università occupata compariva la scritta: "Deleuze è morto, tutto è possibile". Un ventennio è trascorso, durante il quale l'opera di questo straordinario filosofo si è andata affermando. Tra specialisti e lettori. Tra questi studiosi c'è Michael Hardt. Il quale, prima di diventare il coautore di rinomanza internazionale di "Impero" (insieme a Toni Negri), ha pubblicato la prima monografia di lingua inglese dedicata a Gilles Deleuze. Per una generazione di militanti, ricercatori e filosofi cresciuta a cavallo tra i due secoli, Deleuze sarebbe diventato l'autore che più ha contribuito all'uscita dalla dialettica e dai vicoli della teoria e della prasse novecentesca
Assembly by Michael Hardt( Book )

21 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years 'leaderless' social movements have proliferated around the globe, from North Africa and the Middle East to Europe, the Americas, and East Asia. Some of these movements have led to impressive gains: the toppling of authoritarian leaders, the furthering of progressive policy, and checks on repressive state forces. They have also been, at times, derided by journalists and political analysts as disorganized and ineffectual, or suppressed by disoriented and perplexed police forces and governments who fail to effectively engage them. Activists, too, struggle to harness the potential of these horizontal movements. Why have the movements, which address the needs and desires of so many, not been able to achieve lasting change and create a new, more democratic and just society? Some people assume that if only social movements could find new leaders they would return to their earlier glory. Where, they ask, are the new Martin Luther Kings, Rudi Dutschkes, and Stephen Bikos? With the rise of right-wing political parties in many countries, the question of how to organize democratically and effectively has become increasingly urgent. Although today's leaderless political organizations are not sufficient, a return to traditional, centralized forms of political leadership is neither desirable nor possible. Instead, as Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri argue, familiar roles must be reversed: leaders should be responsible for short-term, tactical action, but it is the multitude that must drive strategy. In other words, if these new social movements are to achieve meaningful revolution, they must invent effective modes of assembly and decision-making structures that rely on the broadest democratic base. Drawing on ideas developed through their well-known Empire trilogy, Hardt and Negri have produced, in Assembly, a timely proposal for how current large-scale horizontal movements can develop the capacities for political strategy and decision-making to effect lasting and democratic change. We have not yet seen what is possible when the multitude assembles"--Inside jacket

Common Wealth : das Ende des Eigentums by Michael Hardt( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In der momentanen Krise wächst das gesellschaftliche Unbehagen am Kapitalismus. Viele Menschen fragen jetzt nach einer menschlicheren Alternative des Zusammenlebens. Eine Gesellschaft jenseits von Maximen wie Profit, Konkurrenz und Besitzdenken - ist das möglich? Michael Hardt und Antonio Negri, Autoren des Bestsellers" Empire", entwickeln in ihrem neuen großen Werk einen provozierend optimistischen Gesellschaftsentwurf. Dieser beruht nicht mehr auf dem neoliberalen Gegensatz von Privatbesitz und öffentlichem Eigentum, sondern auf der Idee des Gemeinsamen (" common"). Ressourcen wie Wasser, Luft und Pflanzen und immaterielle Güter wie Wissen und Information gehören uns allen. Wenn wir sie teilen, wird der Weg frei für eine gerechtere Gesellschaft, an der alle partizipieren können. Im Streit um das politische Profil des 21. Jahrhunderts bieten die Autoren ein zentrales Gegengewicht zu all jenen, die uns weismachen wollen, dass die derzeitige Politik- und Wirtschaftsform die einzig mögliche sei

Demokratie! : wofür wir kämpfen by Michael Hardt( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Finanz- und Umweltkrisen haben gezeigt: Die Welt braucht eine neue politische Ordnung. In ihrer Streitschrift entwerfen Michael Hardt und Antonio Negri den Weg dorthin. Inspiriert von den weltweiten Protestbewegungen beschreiben sie das Projekt einer Demokratie von unten: Wenn wir uns den Schulden verweigern, aus der Überwachung befreien, neue Netze politischer Information schaffen und die entleerte repräsentative Demokratie durch lebendige Formen der Beteiligung ersetzen, können wir eine neue Verfassung begründen. Eine, in der Wasser, Banken, Bildung und andere Ressourcen>>commons<<, Gemeingüter sind. Auf diesem Weg können wir die Folgen der Finanzkrise, die drängenden Umweltprobleme und die wachsende soziale Ungleichheit überwinden
Declaration by Michael Hardt( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and French and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is not a manifesto. Manifestos provide a glimpse of a world to come and also call into being the subject, who although now only a specter must materialize to become the agent of change. Manifestos work like the ancient prophets, who by the power of their vision create their own people. Today's social movements have reversed the order, making manifestos and prophets obsolete. Agents of change have already descended into the streets and occupied city squares, not only threatening and toppling rulers but also conjuring visions of a new world. More important, perhaps, the multitudes, through their logics and practices, their slogans and desires, have declared a new set of principles and truths. How can their declaration become the basis for constituting a new and sustainable society? How can those principles and truths guide us in reinventing how we relate to each other and our world? In their rebellion, the multitudes must discover the passage from declaration to constitution."--Publisher description
