Overview

The global financial crisis showed deep problems with mainstream economic predictions. At the same time, it showed the vulnerability of the world’s richest countries and the enormous potential of some poorer ones. China, India, Brazil and other countries are growing faster than Europe or America and they have weathered the crisis better. Will they be new world leaders? And is their growth due to following conventional economic guidelines or instead to strong state leadership and sometimes protectionism? These issues are basic not only to the question of which countries will grow in coming decades but to likely conflicts over global trade policy, currency standards, and economic cooperation.

Contributors include: Immanuel Wallerstein, David Harvey, Saskia Sassen, James Kenneth Galbraith, Manuel Castells, Nancy Fraser, Rogers Brubaker, David Held, Mary Kaldor, Vadim Volkov, Giovanni Arrighi, Beverly Silver, and Fernando Coronil.

The three volumes can purchased individually or as a set.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Remarkable in its geographic reach and analytical reach, this book offers timely food for thought to social scientists and policy makers interested in explaining the relative success and decline of societies in the age of neoliberalism.”-Michele Lamont,author of How Professors Think: Inside the Curious World of Academic Judgment

“Who won and who lost in the global economic crisis that has dominated the news in the last two years? Aftermath provides surprising and much-needed critical analyses of this question. Supposedly robust, rich democracies have floundered badly, while the growth rates of many developing nations — from Brazil to Turkey — have been impressive. Distinguished economists, sociologists, and political scientists take to this crucial task with insight based on new empirical investigations that should be read by anyone who wants to understand where we are headed in the future.”
-Katherine S. Newman,author of The Accordion Family: Globalization Reshapes the Private World

This penetrating collection of essays on the global economic crises of our times throws light into a dark tunnel and enables us to understand better the world we live in and how it needs to be transformed.”
