This book was written during a year's stay at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. Countless authors have sung its praises. Aside from splendid surroundings, unlimited library and secretarial assistance, and a ready supply of varied scholars to consult at a moment's notice, what the center offers is to leave the scholar to his own devices, for good or ill. Would that all men had such wisdom. The final version was consummated with the aid of a grant from the Social Sciences Grants Subcommittee of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research of McGill University.

Immanuel Wallerstein’s highly influential, multi-volume opus, The Modern World-System, is one of this century’s greatest works of social science. An innovative, panoramic reinterpretation of global history, it traces the emergence and development of the modern world from the sixteenth to the twentieth century.Review:
"...one of the important books of the year....all are sure to agree that Wallerstein has written a most impressive book."
--THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
"This is an exciting and highly intelligent book...Wallerstein has produced a splendid stimulant to our historical imagination, and deserves a wide readership."
"[This] is a visionary work...this may be one of the most important theoretical statements about development since the time of Max Weber."
"...Wallerstein has provided what can only be called a major work of analytical and synthetic sociological history...Wallerstein's work is indispensable to those who wish to understand the background from which the contemporary world has emerged."
