About this title:

Synopsis: Responding to the need to take a fresh look at world history, hitherto dominated by Eurocentric ideologues and historians in their attempt to justify the nature and charecter of modern capitalism, this book looks at the ancient world system and how it influenced the development of the modern world It also analyses the origin and nature of modern globalisation and the challenges it presents in achieving socialism. Amin, one of the best-known thinkers of his generation, examines a theme that has been primordial to his contribution to political and economic thought: the question of unequal development. This is refreshing the creative work that is necessary reading for anyone wanting to understand the real process of history.

About the Author: Samir Amin is an economist, the director of Forum du Tiers Monde (Third World Forum) in Dakar, Senegal, and the chair of the World Forum for Alternatives. He is one of the best-known thinkers of his generation, both in development theory and in the relativistic-cultural critique of the social sciences.
