Globalization Unmasked: Imperialism in the 21st Century

Globalization Unmasked: Imperialism in the 21st Century Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Globalization is the mantra of our times. Business executives, politicians, and intellectuals all seem to agree that it just happened, and that we must adapt to it. In this new book, the entire globalization project is subjected to a powerful blast from the left. James Petras and Henry Veltmeyer contend that globalization is not new—capitalism over the past 100 years has experienced periodic waxings and wanings of its tendency to integrate economies worldwide. They go on to argue that globalization was created by deliberate policies put in place by powerful states under the control of dominant classes, and that it is not a structural part of the capitalist system—it is instead an ideological smokescreen used to divert attention away from the resurgence of imperialist powers. The authors do see an alternative—a renewed, democratic, and revolutionary socialist vision that is capable of uniting people, and of being recognized by political movements that are committed to finding realistic strategies and achievable goals.

Synopsis:

These authors argue that "globalization" is an abused term and that it provides a cover for a new form of imperialist exploitation and the institution of US hegemony over a global process of capital accumulation. They indicate how political action could be mobilized to resist it.
