Beyond US hegemony? : assessing the prospects for a multipolar world by Samir Amin( )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 1,506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this major new work - the result of a lifetime of intellectual engagement - one of the developing world's most famous thinkers reflects on the times we live in. He argues that US hegemony has reached a dangerous new level under George Bush Jr., and that the US President's hubristic militarism will both lead to a never-ending cycle of wars and block all hopes of social and democratic progress, not just in developing countries, but in the North as well." "Samir Amin also rejects the highly ideological notion that the current form of neoliberal capitalism - 'really existing capitalism' in which imperialism is an integral and permanent part - is an inevitable future for humanity, or in fact socially or politically tolerable. At the same time, he is not opposed to globalization as such; indeed he believes the whole world today is irrevocably connected, and that solidarity in diversity is the key to the struggle for a better world."--Jacket

Capitalism in the age of globalization : the management of contemporary society by Samir Amin( )

45 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 1,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking to the longer term, Amin rejects a passive acceptance of the inevitability of globalization in its present polarizing form, or the simple-minded equation of development with expansion of the market. Instead, he argues for each society being allowed to negotiate the terms of its interdependence with the rest of the global economy in order that essential national developments can be pursued in a pluralistic world
The implosion of contemporary capitalism by Samir Amin( )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 973 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renowned political economist Samir Amin, engaged in a unique lifelong effort both to narrate and affect the human condition on a global scale, brings his analysis up to the present--the world of 2013. The key events of our times--financial crisis, the emerging nations, globalization, financialization, political Islam, Euro-zone implosion--are related in a coherent, historically based, account. Changes in contemporary capitalism require an updating of definitions and analysis of social classes, class struggles, political parties, social movements and the ideological forms in which they express their modes of action in the transformation of societies. Amin meets this challenge and lays bare the reality of monopoly capitalism in its general, global form. Ultimately, Amin demonstrates that this system is not viable and that the implosion in progress is unavoidable. Whether humanity will rise to the challenge of building a more humane global order free of the contradictions of capital, however, is yet to be seen"--
Global history : a view from the South by Samir Amin( )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Responding to the need to make a fresh look at world history, hitherto dominated by Eurocentric ideologues and historians in their attempt to justify the nature and character of modern capitalism, Samir Amin looks in this book at the ancient world system and how it has influenced the development of the modern world. He also analyses the origin and nature of modern globalisation and the challenges it presents in achieving socialism. Amin examines the role played by Central Asia in determining the course of world history as well as the different roads taken by Europe and China. The book looks closely at a theme that has been primordial to his contribution to political and economic thought: the question of unequal development. This is a refreshing and creative work that is necessary reading for anyone wanting to understand the real process of history."--Back cover
Ending the crisis of capitalism or ending capitalism? by Samir Amin( )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With his usual verve and sharpness Samir Amin examines the factors that brought about the 2008 financial collapse and explores the systemic crisis of capitalism after two decades of neoliberal globalisation. He traces the origins of the crisis to the 1970s and lays bare the relationship between dominating oligopolies and the globalisation of the world economy, which allowed those oligopolies to have exclusive calls on the world's natural resources and to sweep aside any resistance. The decisions of the recent G20 meetings, where the Chinese President Hu Jintao observed that it would be necessary to envisage the creation of a global financial system that is not based on the US dollar, demonstrate the threat to the plutocracies of the US, Europe and Japan. Amin examines the attempts by these powers to get back to the pre-2008 system, and to impose their domination on the peoples of the South through intensifying military intervention by using institutions such as NATO. He also looks at an alternative strategy that would, building on the advances made by progressive forces in Latin America, allow for a more humane society through forces in both the North and in the South working together
Three essays on Marx's value theory by Samir Amin( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 867 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this slim, insightful volume, noted economist Samir Amin returns to the core of Marxian economic thought: Marx's theory of value. He begins with the same question that Marx, along with the classical economists, once pondered: how can every commodity, including labor power, sell at its value on the market and still produce a profit for owners of capital? While bourgeois economists attempted to answer this question according to the categories of capitalist society itself, Marx sought to peer through the surface phenomena of market transactions and develop his theory by examining the actual social relations they obscured. The debate over Marx's conclusions continues to this day. Amin defends Marx's theory of value against its critics and also tackles some of its trickier aspects. He examines the relationship between Marx's abstract concepts--such as "socially necessary labor time"--And how they are manifested in the capitalist marketplace as prices, wages, rents, and so on. He also explains how variations in price are affected by the development of "monopoly-capitalism," the abandonment of the gold standard, and the deepening of capitalism as a global system. Amin extends Marx's theory and applies it to capitalism's current trajectory in a way that is unencumbered by the weight of orthodoxy and unafraid of its own radical conclusions."--Publisher's website

Reimagining Pan-Africanism : distinguished Mwalimu Nyerere lecture series 2009-2013 by Wole Soyinka( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the nineteen 60s and 70s, the University of Dar es salaam was recognised internationally as a great academic institution, and the site of anti-colonialist, anti-imperialist, socialist studies and activism. With the onslaught of neo-liberalism beginning with Structural Adjustment Programmes in Tanzania in the mid 80s, the university was one of its prime targets; subjected to numerous pressures designed to extinguish the flames of revolutionary scholarship and activism. The establishment in 2008 of the Mwalimu Nyerere Chair on Pan, Africanism with Professor Issa Shivji as its first Chairman, and the annual Distinguished Nyerere Lectures Series inaugurating annual intellectual festivals was, in Professor Shivji's introduction to this volume of collected lectures, the resurrection of radical Pan-Africanism at the University of Dar es salaam. The impact of the festivals and the lectures went well beyond the university community, as substantial number of the participants at these lectures and debates were citizen intellectuals, not part of the university community. The calibre of the distinguished lecturers speaks for itself; there could be no better representation of progressive African intellectuals honouring the legacy of Mwalimu Nyerere, than Professors Wole Soyinka, Samir Amin, Bereket Habte Selassie, Micere Githae Mugo and Thandika Mkandawire whose lectures are published in this book
