This highly successful text has been updated and revised to take account of new developments in international political economy, notably the East Asian crisis, and the deepening crisis of African society. It also addresses recent forms of international 'management of instability' that are beginning to emerge as contemporary forms of imperialist globalism. At the same time, more attention is paid to the gathering 'mosquito cloud' of local resistance movements around the world.

Globalization has created a new architecture of core-periphery relations in the world economy, in which social divisions replace geographic divisions.From the Publisher:
New to this edition are sections on the new "digital" economy; the resurgence of the United States after decades of putative relative decline and the question of renewed U.S. dominance in the global system; and the volatility of the global financial markets culminating in the East Asia crisis of 1997. Part II has been thoroughly reconfigured and expanded, as have the chapters on East Asia and on Africa. Finally, the conclusions have been rethought in the light of the mushrooming cloud of antiglobalist protests.
