Class, by Andrea Cavalletti, is a striking montage of diverse materials—Marx and Jules Verne, Benjamin and Gabriel Tarde. In it, Cavalletti asks whether the untimely concept of class is once again thinkable. Faced with new pogroms and state racism, he challenges us to imagine a movement that would unsettle and eventually destroy the crowd.

Literature and Literary Criticism:
Political Science: Classic Political Thought
"Cavalletti is one of the most innovative Italian philosophers. Everything is unsettled and illuminated by his gaze: the city, the crowd, masses, nature, myth. What finally appears, through a gripping reading of Walter Benjamin, is nothing short of a new figure of the political."
Giorgio Agamben, author of 'Pulcinella'
