The Implosion of Contemporary Capitalism
EUR€12.82New Kobo Germany
Renowned political economist Samir Amin, engaged in a uniquelifelong effort both to narrate and affect the human condition on aglobal scale, brings his analysis up to the present-the world of2013. The key events of our times-financial crisis, the emergingnations, globalization, financialization, political Islam, Eurozoneimplosion-are related in a coherent, historically based, account. Changes in contemporary capitalism require an updating of definitionsand analysis of social classes, class struggles, politicalparties, social movements and the ideological forms in which theyexpress their modes of action in the transformation of societies. Amin meets this challenge and lays bare the reality of monopolycapitalism in its general, global form. Ultimately, Amin demonstratesthat this system is not viable and that the implosion in progressis unavoidable. Whether humanity will rise to the challengeof building a more humane global order free of the contradictionsof capital, however, is yet to be seen.
