Renowned political economist Samir Amin, engaged in a unique lifelong effort
both to narrate and affect the human condition on a global scale, brings his
analysis up to the present -the world of 2013. The key events of our times-
financial crisis, the emerging nations, globalization, financialization,
political Islam, Euro-zone implosion- are related in a coherent, historically
based, account. Changes in contemporary capitalism require an updating of
definitions and analysis of social classes, class struggles, political
parties, social movements and the ideological forms in which they express
their modes of action in the transformation of societies. Amin meets this
challenge and lays bare the reality of monopoly capitalism in its general,
global form. Ultimately, Amin demonstrates that this system is not viable and
that the implosion in progress is unavoidable. Whether humanity will rise to
the challenge of building a more humane global order free of the
contradictions of capital, however, is yet to be seen.
