After Liberalism

“A lucid account of recent political changes and a provocative look at what to expect in the coming decades.” —Midwest Book Review

In After Liberalism, the distinguished historian and political scientist Immanuel Wallerstein examines the process of disintegration of our modern world-system and speculates on the changes that may occur during the next few decades. He explores the historical choices before us and suggests paths for reconstructing our world-system on a more rational and socially equitable basis.
