Morton, Adam David.Unravelling Gramsci: Hegemony and Passive Revolution in the Global Political Economy.
This book helps to break Gramsci’s Hegemony theory into understandable ideas as they relate to the uneven development of society and what that means to the individual. Some of the specific details the book offers includes a more straightforward and down-to-earth understanding of how Gramsci’s hegemony theory focuses on the ways in which structure is imposed on the cultural level and how this revises the Maxist viewpoint that focuses primarily on economics. As part of the discussion, Morton illustrates many of Gramsci’s concepts such as the idea of passive revolution, uneven development and political economy. Because it is all placed within a modern world context, this text will be helpful in applying Gramsci’s ideas to the research topic.

This book also discusses the basic ideas of Gramsci’s theory of hegemony but in a different context. Beginning with a basic introduction to what hegemony is and how it relates to other theories of social order. What will be particularly useful to this research, however, is the chapter on hegemony and race. Throughout this chapter, the authors continue to apply Gramsci’s hegemonic theory to the question of race particularly as it is displayed through mass communication such as television and film. Although the first chapter is somewhat difficult, the authors provide a 30 page analysis of Gramsci’s theory as it applies to the depiction of African Americans on television which will be very helpful in the present research as an example of how this can be done.
