Contents: Introduction: Why unthink? Part 1 The social sciences - from genesis to bifurcation: the French Revolution as a world-historical event; crisis - the world-economy, the movements and the ideologies. Part 2 The concept of development: the Industrial Revolution - cui bono?; economic theories and historical disparities of development; societal development or development of the world-system?; the Myrdal legacy - racism and underdevelopment as dilemmas; development - lodestar or illusion? Part 3 Concepts of time and space: a comment on epistemology - what is Africa?; does India exist?; the inventions of timespace realities. Part 4 Revisiting Marx: Marx and underdevelopment; Marxisms as utopias - evolving ideologies. Part 5 Revisiting Braudel: Fernand Braudel, historian, "homme de la conjoncture"; capitalism - the enemy of the market?; Braudel on capitalism, or everything upside down; beyond "annales"? Part 6 World-systems analysis as unthinking: historical systems as complex systems; call for a debate about the paradigm; a theory of economic history in place of economic history?; world-systems analysis - the second phase.
Responsibility: Immanuel Wallerstein.
