Blurb/Shorttext:
“We can assert with confidence that the present system cannot survive.” The system that Prof. Immanuel Wallerstein is referring to is the modern world-system. In his multi-volume analysis “The Modern World-System” and innumerable complementary articles and books Wallerstein discusses the origin, trajectory and imminent downfall of capitalism from a truly global perspective. Almost marginalized by critics, academic interest in world-systems theory, especially in the assertion of capitalism’s impending end, rekindled after the international financial crisis wreaked havoc in the world economy, shattering the foundations of neo-liberalism. The author, Lucas M. Ullrich, first gives an introduction to the world-systems theory of Prof. Immanuel Wallerstein (also known as world-systems analysis) and its constituting elements. Subsequently, he summarizes the arguments of the great body of critical literature, which “The Modern World-System” has sparked since its publication in 1974. The book concludes with a detailed discussion of the alleged crisis of capitalism and the transition to a new system.
