Challening the Record: Amadeo Bordiga and the Myth of Antonio Gramsci

I have absolutely never been impressed with Antonio Gramsci and I have always found his activities in the PCI in the 1920's dodgy, but I happen to think that this piece makes a compelling vindication of Amadeo Bordiga in particular and a necessary challenge to the academy-approved and Stalin-approved versions of the history.  It is also a first rate introduction to the history.  This is well worth reading alongside The Bordigist Current by Philippe Bourrinet (do not get the ones from the ICC, they have edited the book to their ends and pretend that Bourrinet did not write it.)
