Book News Annotation:

Bagchi (director, Institute of Development Studies) analyzes the rise of global capitalism in connection with the military and economic power of the Western states and examines capitalism's effects on common people in the developed and undeveloped worlds, in terms of economics and public health, as well as in terms of the constant wars that are an integral part of the capitalist system.
