Capitalism in the Age of Globalization: The Management of Contemporary Society (Critique. Influence. Change.)

Samir Amin


Samir Amin continues to be one of many world's so much influential thinkers concerning the altering nature of North-South family within the improvement of latest capitalism. during this hugely prescient ebook, initially released in 1997, he presents a strong research of the recent unilateral capitalist period following the cave in of the Soviet version, and the plain triumph of the marketplace and globalization.

Amin's leading edge research charts the increase of ethnicity and fundamentalism as results of the failure of ruling periods within the South to counter the exploitative phrases of globalization. This has had profound implications and maintains to resonate at the present time. moreover, his deconstruction of the Bretton Woods associations as managerial mechanisms which guard the profitability of capital presents an incredible perception into the ongoing problems in reforming them. Amin's rejection of the obvious inevitability of globalization in its current polarising shape is especially prophetic - in its place he asserts the necessity for every society to barter the phrases of its inter-dependence with the remainder of the worldwide economy.

A landmark paintings by way of a key modern thinker.
