Beyond US hegemony? assessing the prospects for a multipolar world by Samir Amin( )
14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
US hegemony has reached a dangerous new level under George Bush Jr, and his hubristic militarism will lead to a never-ending cycle of wars, and block all hopes of social and democratic progress. Samir Amin rejects the notion that the current form of neoliberal capitalism - in which imperialism is an integral and permanent part - is an inevitable future for humanity. He analyses tendencies within the US, Europe and Japan, the rising powers of China and India, the likely future trajectory of post-Soviet Russia, and the developing world. He explores whether other hegemonic blocs may emerge to cir

Global History a View from the South by Samir Amin( )

Responding to the need to take a fresh look at world history, hitherto dominated by Eurocentric ideologues and historians in their attempt to justify the nature and character of modern capitalism, Samir Amin looks in this book at the ancient world system and how it has influenced the development of the modern world. He analyses the origin and nature of modern globalization and the challenges it presents in achieving socialism and examines the role played by Central Asia in determining the course of world history as well as the different roads taken by Europe and China. The book looks closely a
Ending the Crisis of Capitalism or Ending Capitalism? by Samir Amin( )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The factors that brought about the 2008 financial collapse are examined in this analysis that explores the systemic crisis of capitalism after two decades of neoliberal globalization. Samir Amin lays bare the relationship between dominating oligopolies and the globalization of the world economy and argues that the current crisis is a profound crisis of the capitalist system itself, bringing forward an era in which wars--and perhaps revolutions--will once again shake the world. The author examines the threat to the plutocracies of the United States, Europe, and Japan from decisions of recent G20
