World-systems analysis : an introduction by Immanuel Maurice Wallerstein( Book )

42 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In World-Systems Analysis, Immanuel Wallerstein provides a concise and accessible introduction to the comprehensive approach that he pioneered thirty years ago to understanding the history and development of the modern world. Since Wallerstein first developed world-systems analysis, it has become a widely utilized methodology within the historical social sciences and a common point of reference in discussions of globalization. Now, for the first time in one volume, Wallerstein offers a succinct summary of world-systems analysis and a clear outline of the modern world-system, describing the structures of knowledge upon which it is based, its mechanisms, and its future. Wallerstein explains the defining characteristics of world-systems analysis: its emphasis on world-systems rather than nation-states, on the need to consider historical processes as they unfold over long periods of time, and on combining within a single analytical framework bodies of knowledge usually viewed as distinct from one another -- such as history, political science, economics, and sociology. He describes the world-system as a social reality comprised of interconnected nations, firms, households, classes, and identity groups of all kinds. He identifies and highlights the significance of the key moments in the evolution of the modern world-system: the development of a capitalist world-economy in the sixteenth-century, the beginning of two centuries of liberal centrism in the French Revolution of 1789, and the undermining of that centrism in the global revolts of 1968. Intended for general readers, students, and experienced practitioners alike, this book presents a complete overview of world-systems analysis by its original architect
Historical capitalism by Immanuel Maurice Wallerstein( Book )

83 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,086 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this short, highly readable book, Immanuel Wallerstein provides a condensation of the central ideas of The Modern World-System, his monumental study of capitalism as an integrated, historical entity. In developing an anatomy of capitalism over the past five centuries, Wallerstein provides one of the most coherent and succinct introductions tot he genesis of a global system of exploitation. Particular attention is focused on the emergence and development of a unified world market, and the concomitant international division of labor. Wallerstein argues forcefully, against the grain of much current opinion, that capitalism has brought about an actual, not merely relative, immiseration in the countries of the Third World. The economic and social problems of underdeveloped countries will remain unresolved as long as they remain located within a framework of world capitalism. Historical Capitalism is a welcome and stimulating synthesis of one of the most influential assessments of capitalism as a world-historic mode of production

"In After Liberalism, the distinguished historian and political scientist Immanuel Wallerstein examines the process of disintegration of our modern world-system and speculates on the changes that may occur during the next few decades.

Unthinking social science : the limits of nineteenth-century paradigms by Immanuel Maurice Wallerstein( Book )

37 editions published between 1991 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this, new edition of a classic work -- now with a new preface -- on the roots of social scientific thinking, Immanuel Wallerstein develops a thorough-going critique of the legacy of nineteenth-century social science for social thought in the new millennium. We have to "unthink"--Radically revise and discard -- many of the presumptions that still remain the foundation of dominant perspectives today. Once considered liberating, these notions are now barriers to a clear understanding of our social world. They include, for example, ideas built into the concept of "development." In place of such a notion, Wallerstein stresses transformations in time and space. Geography and chronology should not be regarded as external influences upon social transformations but crucial to what such transformation actually is. Unthinking Social Science applies the ideas thus elaborated to a variety of theoretical areas and historical problems. Wallerstein also offers a critical discussion of the key figures whose ideas have influenced the position he formulates -- including Karl Marx and Fernand Braudel, among others. In the concluding sections of the book, Wallerstein demonstrates how these new insights lead to a revision of world-systems analysis." -- Publisher description

13 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The modern world-system : capitalist agriculture and the origins of the European world-economy in the sixteenth century by Immanuel Maurice Wallerstein( Book )

127 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La publicación de El moderno sistema mundial supuso el comienzo de una verdadera revolución en la historiografía y un fuerte impulso al renacimiento de la sociología histórica. Más allá de las discrepancias y las polémicas a las que ha dado origen, esta obra es ya un clásico que constituye un ambicioso intento de reconstruir la historia de la actual sociedad capitalista partiendo de una perspectiva global. Su argumento central es que el moderno sistema mundial toma la forma de una economía-mundo capitalista, que tuvo su génesis en Europa en el siglo XVI e implicó la transformación del modo de producción feudal en un sistema social cualitativamente diferente. Desde entonces, esta economía-mundo se ha extendido geográficamente hasta abarcar todo el globo, ha seguido un modelo cíclico de expansión y contracción y una localización geográfica variable de los papeles económicos, y ha sufrido un proceso de transformación secular que está aún en marcha. Este segundo volumen abarca el siglo XVII, entendido como el período que va desde 1600 a 1750, un ejemplo del modelo cíclico de expansión y contracción. En lo que respecta a la geografía general del sistema mundial, las fronteras creadas hacia 1500 no varían de forma significativa. En cuanto a los procesos seculares de cambio, no se observa ningún salto cualitativo, sino una continuidad esencial entre el largo siglo XVI y el XVII
Alternatives : the United States confronts the world by Immanuel Maurice Wallerstein( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shows how the U.S. has been in decline since the 1970s and how these longer trends dovetail with current Bush administration policies, which Wallerstein describes as an attempt to reverse the decline in ways that are disastrous to the future of the country and the world. The book's middle section is a log of commentaries written between 2001 and 2004 detailing how the Bush administration has broken the pattern of foreign policies set by six presidents, from Richard Nixon to Bill Clinton. Wallerstein suggests that a threshold has been crossed that will make it difficult for future presidents to practice the kind of "soft" multilateralism in foreign policy American presidents have used in the past
