Auteur: Wallerstein, Immanuel
Titel: World-Systems Analysis
Sub titel: An Introduction
Wallerstein provides a concise and accessible introduction to the comprehensive approach to understanding the history and development of the modern world an approach he pioneered 30 years ago. He 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. Intended for general readers, students, and experienced practitioners alike, this book presents a complete overview of world-systems analysis by its original architect.
