About this title

Synopsis:

This volume, dealing with the situation in the world (particularly in the third and first world parts of it) following the collapse and disappearance of the Soviet Union, is essentially a theoretical exercise focused on the question of socialism in our times. The issues dealt with include socialism in one country, the worldsystem theory, post-colonial national projects, the current long-term crisis of capitalism (a depressed continuum Mesros has called it), globalisation, welfare capitalism, the role of the state, the necessity and possibility of a socialist transcendence of capitalism, etc. There is a detailed discussion of globalisation, both as a response to the current crisis of capitalism and as a concept that has come up to present the international expansion and domination of capitalism in a favorable light, an alternative to Marxist vocabulary with its concepts of capitalism, imperialism, etc.
