About this book

This book contributes to the current revival of dependency approaches for the analysis of global capitalism. Reflecting on contemporary uses of the “Dependency Research Program” (DRP) and a refined analytical toolkit, it makes two distinctive contributions to this revival: the analysis of new “situations of dependency”, and the understanding of the “mechanisms of dependency”. The individual chapters draw from a wide range of cases and data from Latin America and Europe and imbricate concepts and ideas from the DRP with those of other approaches, from post-Keynesian economics to structural economics, institutional economics, regulation theory, comparative capitalisms, business politics, economic geography and critical finance studies, providing a rich array of possibilities for virtuous inter-disciplinary cross-fertilization. This volume is a valuable contribution for those interested in understanding how global capitalism works in Latin America, Europe and beyond.

Reviews

“A half century after Cardoso and Faletto penned their foundational Dependencia y Desarrollo, Madariaga and Palestini have done comparative political economy an invaluable service by bringing together a wide-ranging set of contributions extending and reinvigorating the dependency perspective. From Stallings’ elegant explication of the effects of China’s rise to Scheiring’s creative parsing of the connections between dependence and authoritarianism in Hungary, the volume offers an incontrovertible demonstration of the dependency approach’s continued vitality and usefulness.”
-Peter Evans, Professor Emeritus, Department of Sociology, University of California, Berkeley.

 

“This book constitutes an important contribution to the intellectual comeback of dependency thinking.   In addition to enhancing our understanding of the diverse mechanisms and manifestations of dependence within contemporary global capitalism, in particular within the context of Europe and Latin America, the authors shed light on the continued relevance of key dependentista terms such as core and periphery for making sense of intersecting, multiscalar forms of structural asymmetry and domination rooted in capitalist logics.”

-Arlene B. Tickner, Universidad del Rosario, Bogotá, Colombia
