About this book

This book presents a series of interviews with Hartmut Elsenhans on his wide-ranging theories and their policy implications. Serving as a compilation of his distilled thoughts, we discuss with him his unique world economic theory, his theorisation of social movements, his work on overcoming underdevelopment, and much more.

Reviews

“This book is a great resource for instructors of undergraduate courses in international/global political economy or development economics, as a supplement to graduate-level courses in these areas and to everyone interested in gaining insights into a modern critique of capitalism and economic policy, which one cannot place squarely in the ‘left’ or in the ‘right’ of the political spectrum.” (Daniel S. Leon, Leipzig, Comparativ -Zeitschrift für Globalgeschichte und vergleichende Gesellschaftsforschung, Vol. 28 (3), 2018)

“Scholz and Wilcock have presented a highly valuable and fun-to-read piece. … It is a great present Scholz and Wilcock have made them … in making his original theories and concepts challenging conventionally accepted axioms potentially more accessible to a wider public.” (Christoph Sorg, Global Politics Review, Vol. 2 (1), April, 2016)

'Hartmut Elsenhans is one of the most outstanding scholars on Capitalist World System theory: on rent theory, marginality, underdevelopment, and underconsumption. This idea-driven book should help to re-discover his 'grand theories' a timely contribution to the discussions on inequality and poverty.'

Professor Robert Kappel, German Institute of Global and Area Studies, Germany

'This book does justice to Hartmut Elsenhans' incredible range of interests and equally matched erudition. He is contentious, controversial and convincing in equal measures the hallmark of true originality.'

Emeritus Professor Harbans Mukhia, Jawaharlal Nehru University, India

'Hartmut Elsenhans' economic theory has long been one of the best tools for understanding the failure of so many development policies. However, Elsenhans' work has long been inaccessible to many because it demands a sophisticated understanding of both neoclassical and Marxist economics. Wilcock and Scholz have done a wonderful service by making Elsenhans' understanding of modern capitalism accessible to a wider audience. This is an important and timely book.'

Professor Craig N. Murphy, Wellesley College, USA
