Imperialism, Crisis and Class Struggle: The Enduring Verities and Contemporary Face of Capitalism (Studies in Critical Social Sciences)
This book of essays is written in honour of James Petras, in recognition of his intellectual achievements and political interventions – his steadfast principles, distinguished scholarship, extraordinary writing and uncompromising dedication to the popular struggles of millions across the world. In recognition of his lifetime of significant contributions and central role in the global struggle for social justice, the authors of this collection, each a leading scholar in his and her own right, address some of the most critical issues of our time: those of imperialism, crisis and class struggle. These issues allow the authors to identify both ‘the enduring verities and contemporary face of capitalism’ and James Petras’ contributions to their work and that of others.
