Synopses & Reviews
Henryk Szlajfer offers, against the background of developments in Latin America (mainly Brazil) and Central Europe (mainly Poland) in times of first globalization from late 19th century until late 1930s, a reinterpretation of economic nationalism both as an analytical category and historical experience. Critically explored are attempts at proto-economic nationalism in early 19th century Poland and Latin America.
Szlajfer interprets economic nationalism as a significant world-wide phenomenon intimately linked with the birth, development and crisis of capitalist modernity
