9780415955447: Hegemony: Studies in Consensus and Coercion (Routledge Studies in Social and Political Thought)

The originality and depth of Gramsci's theory of hegemony is now evidenced in the wide-ranging intellectual applications within a growing corpus of research and writings that include social, political and cultural theory, historical interpretation, gender and globalization. The reason that hegemony has been so widely and diversely adopted lies in the unique way that Gramsci formulated the 'problematics' of structure/superstructure, coercion/consensus, materialism/idealism and regression/progression within the concept hegemony. However, in much of the contemporary literature the full complexity of hegemony is either obfuscated or ignored.

Hegemony, through comprehensive and systematic analyses of Gramsci's formulation, a picture of hegemony as a complex syncretism of these dichotomies. In other words, hegemony is presented as a concept that is as much about aspiration and progressive politico-social relations as it is about regressive and dominative processes. Thus, the volume recognises and presents this complexity through a selection of contemporary theoretical as well as historico-social investigations that mark a significantly innovative moment in the work on hegemony.

Review:

"Strategic thinking is a discipline of major importance. Julia Sloan's book not only stimulates managers to think more strategically, it also forces them to act more strategically. Combining learning with strategy will inspire both readers and doers of strategy to behave more strategically and to embark on strategy conversations in a renewed and more value adding way." - Flemming Poulfelt, Professor, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark "Learning to Think Strategically is a masterpiece weaving exceptional research into practical application. The power of intuition, framing, and informal learning brings strategic thinking into clear focus. Learning to Think Strategically is required reading for our MBA students." - Richard Okumoto, Lecturer at San Jose State University, USA and Chairman of the Strategy Committee at the Center for Employment Training, Inc. "Entropic one-hit-wonder or the messy and creative success of the Beatles? Julia Sloan's deep work with executives and corporations supports our own walks on the courageous path of the later. Her learning-based model is an individualized experience that forever and again advances the way we think about and form strategy. Sloan additionally writes in an engaging style that brings a rare clarity to this complex topic." - Dr. Douglas Scherer, Major Global Investment Firm "This new edition of Julia Sloan's insightful book, Learning to Think Strategically, is a wonderful addition to the growing literature on strategic thinking and management. This edition discusses the history and importance of thinking strategically and provides important insights that Julia gained from numerous in-depth interviews with successful executives from around the world. Julia discusses the significance of experience, intuition, and dialog in developing strategy and shows how successful strategic thinking transcends culture and is essential for organizational success. The book is highly informative and incisively written. It should be required reading for graduate students in management whether they are focused on the public, nonprofit, or private sectors. All leaders who wish to enhance the success of their organizations will find this work indispensable." - Dr. J. Edward Kellough, Professor and Department Head, Department of Public Administration and Policy, The University of Georgia, USA "It has recently become clear that what distinguishes exceptionally successful leaders and strategists is their ability to critically challenge their own deeply-rooted assumptions, adapt to change, and to have the wisdom to courageously seize the opportunities that change creates. In this book, Julia Sloan, uses her long experience of working with global firms and government leaders to demonstrate how strategic thinking, as well as transformation is possible and how it is done - both from a theoretical and practical perspective. With its universal and integrated approach, this book is destined to become a standard in challenging the conventional wisdom about strategy and bringing thinking and innovation into what we do and what we plan to do." - Dr. Khalid Al-Yahya, Managing Director, Accenture Management Consulting - Middle East; Fmr Associate at Harvard Kennedy School of Government "Julia Sloan has written a first rate book on strategic thinking. She makes a unique contribution by exploring the cognitive basis of what it means to think strategically, skillfully presenting insights that executives can use to spot strategic thinking in individuals and build strategic capacity in their own organizations. Sloan combines erudition with practical application, something that is seldom found in the literature on strategy. A must read for executives and leaders aspiring to build strategic organizations." - Ross Harrison, Professor at Georgetown University, USA
