About this book

This book provides a critical engagement between contending historical materialist approaches that have played a crucial role in shaping post-positivist International Relations theory. It analyzes globalization as a process of state formation and argues that its fate depends on the neo-liberal recomposition of labour relations. .

Reviews

'The book is a stimulus towards clarifying a radical critique of the world we know and all will profit by reading the concrete illustrative cases included in the exposition of the different theoretical standpoints.' - Robert Cox, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, York University, Toronto, Canada

'Eschewing orthodoxies, this work in critical theory offers fresh insights into capitalist development and globalization. Its iconoclastic approach is a rare find, a wake-up call to rethinking International Relations and world order.' - James H. Mittelman, Professor of International Relations, American University, USA

'[P]rovides a thoughtful overview of the debates on the left about a number of issues, from Latin American state development to the political economy of the European Union.' - Political Studies Review
