From the British Empire to the WTO, imperialism and its political economy have turned the world upside down. This volume of original essays by internationally noted scholars traces the spread of imperialism and capitalism and demonstrates that globalization is not a New Millennium phenomenon, but rather one with classic roots as well as contemporary reverberations.
Ronald H. Chilcote is professor of economics and political science at the University of California, Riverside.
