Dynamics of Global Crisis
Writing in 1982, four of the foremost theoreticians of the world economy set out their understanding of the long-term dynamics of global capitalism. Dismissing the still-existingSoviet Unionas a "paper tiger", they focused instead on the contradictions of the capitalist world-economy and produced work that canvassed the key forces that have dominated the end of the twentieth and start of the twenty-first centuries.
Samir Amin, Giovanni Arrighi, Andre Gunder Frank(1929-2005), andImmanuel Wallersteinare prominent scholars of world economy. They have been published and studied in every modern language, and have taught and lectured throughout the world.
