Emerging Issues in the 21st Century World-system: New theoretical directions for the 21st century world-system, Volumen 2

Greenwood Publishing Group, 2003 - 275 páginas

As one-half of the latest edition of Immanuel Wallerstein's Political Economy of the World-System series, this collection offers cutting-edge theoretical directions to explain the structural crises of the 21st-century world- system. Contributors argue that the capitalist world system has reached a critical bifurcation point, a short period which will be characterized by a sudden shift in the long-term structural forces that have created and sustained the world as we know it. Writers challenge conventional thinking about the most significant structural crises that face the 21st-century world-system, including terrorism, debt, the growth of megacities as global actors, the emergence of a powerful transnational capitalist class, and the world ecological crisis.
