This book's global approach to world history puts the major political, economic and social transformations of the past hundred years into context. Focusing on the growth and transformation of capitalism as a world system, and its accompanying dialectic of uneven development, Dr. Robertson shows how the Western industrial powers and the underdeveloped Third World form a single continuum of change.
