Product Overview

Over the last two decades, Americas position in the world has declined and the world economy has suffered an extended period of stagnation resulting in a severe sociopolitical crisis. This volume brings together thirteen experts in world-systems analysis to examine the long-term effects of this crisis in world order. Using historical and quantitative analysis, the contributors both theoretically and empirically discuss possible transformations of U.S. society and the world-system, focusing on North-South trade, East-West conflicts, and the relations of the United States with Europe, Japan, and Central America. The effects of this economic crisis on American social life are explored in depth, with emphasis on the organization of business firms, the status of women, and the state of American culture. *Author: Bergensen, Albert/ Boswell, Terry/ Bergesen, Albert *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 320 *Publication Date: 1987/05/21 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.88 inches
