Overview

Drawing on a board-ranging reassessment of the historical and spatial evolution of the world economy. Herman Schwartz shows how the twenty-first-century world has come to resemble the late nineteenth century, in which markets typically drove economic outcomes and generated large-scale financial crises, more than the mid-twentieth century, in which states were often able to control or contain markets. In so doing the shows that globalization is a much longer-term and more multifaceted phenomenon than its current protagonists generally argue and provides a particularly clear account of the complex interdependence of modern states and modern markets.

This new edition expands coverage of Asian development and global integration, especially that of China. It also considers the causes and consequences of the global financial crisis.
