“Most of the writers who contributed to the issue were locked up at the time in Italian jails…. I was trying to draw the attention of the American Left, which still believed in Eurocommunism, to the fate of Autonomia. The survival of the last politically creative movement in the West was at stake, but no one in the United States seemed to realize that, or be willing to listen. Put together as events in Italy were unfolding, the Autonomia issue – which has no equivalent in Italy, or anywhere for that – arrived too late, but it remains an energizing account of a movement that disappeared without bearing a trace, but with a big future still ahead of it.”

– Sylvère Lotringer
