About this book


This major introductory text analyses key development issues and debates from the colonial period up to the present. It traces the historical development of capitalism through successive phases of expansion leading to the present 'implosion'. The book's core focus is on the emergence of a new political economy characterised by flexible accumulation and globalisation, and its differential impact on rising and declining regions of the post-colonial world.
