The book, edited by Henry Veltmeyer, examines the contemporary issues of capitalist development and globalization from a critical perspective.
The essays cover subjects including the financial crisis of 2008, the regional dynamics of neoliberal globalization, democracy and development, the political economy of natural resource extraction, and the formation of a post-neoliberal state. The authors analyze the historical foundations of diffferent countries that impact on economic growth and technological transformation. They also evaluate the relationship between capital and the state, the role of NGOs and social movements.
