Samir Amin, Beyond US Hegemony?: Assessing the Prospects for a Multipolar World
Samir Amin rejects the notion that the current form of neoliberal capitalism is an inevitable future for humanity. He analyzes tendencies within the US, Europe and Japan, the rising powers of China and India, the likely future trajectory of post-Soviet Russia, and the developing world. He explores whether other hegemonic blocs may emerge to circumscribe American power, and force free market capitalism to adjust to demands other than its narrow central economic logic. He identifies the key global campaigns that he feels progressives should launch, and warns that there is no alternative to winning political power.
