"Our barbaric present, marked by savage inequalities and ecological devastation, is rooted in the historical logic of imperialism. Building on Rosa Luxemburg’s brilliant theorising, this book shows why socialism is our only chance of survival." Jacklyn Cock, Professor Emeritus, Department of Sociology and Research Associate, Society, Work and Politics Institute, University of the Witwatersrand

"This book brings together scholars from across the North-South axis to map the shifting fault lines of the world-system in a perilous conjuncture. What emerges is a rich cartography of rivalry and resistance that will speak to the knowledge interests of both scholars and activists – essential reading." Professor Alf Gunvald Nilsen, Department of Sociology, University of Pretoria
