I retract tracing the historical bloc concept to Georges Sorel. Gramsci does this but it is incorrect I subsequently learnt. So I take this back.Also I made the mistake of saying Gramsci does not provide a definition of Hegemony. My error. Yes he does. What he does not do is provide a systematic exposition of the concept. That is what I should have said. My use of recoil at one stage is a lapse. Shoukd have used recanted. Peter Mayo
