Though only appearing as an occasional reference in the Marxist philosopher’s oeuvre, Machiavelli was an unseen constant presence. Together with Spinoza and Marx, Machiavelli was a veritable Althusserian passion. Machiavelli and Us reveals why, and will be welcomed for the light it sheds on the richly complex thought of its author.

Louis Althusser was born in Algeria in 1918 and died in France in 1990. He taught philosophy for many years at the Ecole Normale Superieur in Paris, and was a leading intellectual in the French Communist Party. His books include For Marx; Reading Capital (with Etienne Balibar); Essays in Ideology; Politics and History: Montesquieu, Rousseau, Marx; Machiavelli and Us; and The Spectre of Hegel.
Gregory Elliott is a member of the editorial collective of Radical Philosophy and author of Althusser: The Detour of Theory and Labourism and the English Genius: The Strange Decay of Labour England?.
“Althusser, poised between modernism and postmodernism, meets Machiavelli, poised between the Middle Ages and modernity ... An explosive expression of the vision of revolutionary materialism: the coalescence of materialism and the phenomenon of singularity.”—Antonio Negri
“This is a fascinating and original work that provides a new perspective on the equally enigmatic figures of Althusser and Machiavelli.”—The Front Table
