The long twentieth century : money, power, and the origins of our times by Giovanni Arrighi( Book )

65 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and Turkish and held by 1,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Long Twentieth Century traces the relationship between capital accumulation and state formation over a 700-year period. Arrighi argues that capitalism has unfolded as a succession of "long centuries," each of which produced a new world power that secured control over an expanding world-economic space. Examining the changing fortunes of Florentine, Venetian, Genoese, Dutch, English and finally American capitalism, Arrighi concludes with an examination of the forces that have shaped and are now poised to undermine America's world dominance. A masterpiece of historical sociology, The Long Twentieth Century rivals in scope and ambition contemporary classics by Perry Anderson, Charles Tilly and Michael Mann

Adam Smith in Beijing : lineages of the twenty-first century by Giovanni Arrighi( Book )

31 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the late eighteenth century, the political economist Adam Smith predicted an eventual equalization of power between the conquering West and the conquered non-West. In this new work, Giovanni Arrighi shows how China's extraordinary rise invites us to read The Wealth of Nations in a radically different way than is usually done. He examines how the recent US attempt to bring into existence the first truly global empire in world history was done in order to counter China's spectacular economic success of the 1990s, and how the US's disastrous failure in Iraq has made China the true winner of the US War on Terror. In the 21st century China may well become again the kind of non-capitalist market economy that Smith described, under totally different domestic and world-historical conditions."--Jacket

Antisystemic movements by Giovanni Arrighi( Book )

19 editions published between 1989 and 2018 in English and Italian and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Antisystemic Movements is an eloquent and concise history of popular resistance and class struggle by the leading exponents of the 'world-systems' perspective on capitalism. Basing itself on an analysis of resistance movements since the emergence of capitalism, it shows that while some early forms were successful in their own terms, ultimately they did not impede the consolidation of the modern capitalist world-system. The authors argue that although capitalism generated resistance right from the beginning as it displaced populations, despoiled resources and established global exploitation, until about 1848 the capitalist world-system could crush or outflank an opposition which was dispersed, localized and lacking in organization and continuity. From the mid-nineteenth century down to recent times, more adequately organized social and national movements set some limits on capital accumulation, but generally remained confined in their effectiveness to the terrain of the nation-state. Indeed, paradoxically, the successes of the 'old' social movements helped to boost the power and legitimacy of states while failing to remove the sources of class conflict or to grapple with the consequences of interstate competition. Taking the year 1968 as a symbolic turning-point, the authors argue that 'new' antisystemic movements have arisen which challenge the logic of the capitalist world-system more centrally than ever before. These new movements have a different ethnic and gender composition and different ways of organizing, while their key inspirations show an increasing ability to cross national boundaries. The authors suggest that the new assertiveness of the south, the development of class struggle in the east and the emergence of rainbow coalitions in different world zones might hold out the promise of a future socialist world-system."--Back cover

El largo siglo XX : dinero y poder en los orígenes de nuestra época by Giovanni Arrighi( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esta obra fundamental reconstruye los cambios esenciales que han jalonado la relación entre la acumulación de capital y la formación del Estado a lo largo de un período de 700 años. Giovanni Arrighi, uno de los más significados teóricos marxistas de las últimas décadas, sintetiza de forma magistral teoría social, historia comparativa y narración histórica en este análisis de las estructuras y de los protagonistas que han conformado el curso de la historia mundial durante el último milenio. El autor sostiene que la historia del capitalismo ha operado mediante una sucesión de "siglos largos"; épocas durante las cuales una potencia hegemónica ha desplegado una combinación novedosa de redes económicas y políticas que han asegurado el control sobre un espacio económico mundial en continuo proceso de expansión. Arrighi examina con notable intensidad los modestos comienzos, la consolidación y la violenta ruptura de los lazos forjados entre capital, poder estatal y estrategias geopolíticas por las clases y Estados hegemónicos, sosteniendo, a la postre, que una lógica específica rigió la concentración de poder y la obtención final del control sobre los puntos estratégicos del poder comercial, financiero y político. Desde esta perspectiva, se explican, de forma concisa y brillante, las suertes cambiantes del capitalismo florentino, veneciano, genovés, holandés, inglés y, finalmente, norteamericano. El libro concluye con un análisis de las fuerzas que han erosionado la posición hegemónica de los Estados Unidos y de las perspectivas de resolución de la crisis sistémica actual. Obra maestra de sociología histórica, El largo siglo XX compite, por su alcance y ambición, con los trabajos realizados por estudiosos e intelectuales de la talla de Perry Anderson, Charles Tilly y Michael Mann
