<p> <b>Review</b></p> <p>A scathing indictment of neoliberal globalization from an explicitly anti-capitalist perspective... An exemplary treatment of Latin America&#x2019;s present day political economy and social predicaments.</P> (Jeffery R. Webber <i>Monthly Review</i> 2009)</p> <p>An important book for anyone interested in where our imperiled planet is headed. Robinson... is admirably thorough in his overview of the direction capitalism has taken in Latin America since the 1970s.</P> (Ben Terrall <i>San Francisco Bay Guardian</i> 2009)</p> <p>Robinson's latest book offers brilliant insight into the underlying causes and current dilemmas of globalization.</P> (James M. Cypher <i>NACLA Report on the Americas</i> 2009)</p> <p>This book is a must read, not only for Latin American specialists, but for all those who draw the connection between political economy at the world level and strategies for change.</P> (Steve Ellner <i>Science and Society</i> 2010)</p> <p>An important contribution to globalization studies.</P> (Benjamin Kohl <i>Latin America and Caribbean Contemporary Record</i> 2010)</p> <p>His heterodox and challenging views make provocative reading.</P> (Carlos Davila <i>Business History Review</i> 2010)</p> <p>William I. Robinson has demonstrated once again his importance as a theorist and socially committed academic with his book <I>Latin America and Global Capitalism</I>. This book is a 'must-read' for any scholar interested in the dynamics of contemporary capitalism as well as its specific features in Latin America.</P> (David Martin and Raul Delgado Wise <i>International Journal of Comparative Sociology</i> 2011)</p> <p>William I. Robinson has delivered us a powerful statement on contemporary Latin America as both a product of globalization and a challenge to the view that 'there is no alternative.' This is a wide ranging political economy which is both well researched and eminently readable. A must!</P> (Ronaldo Munck, author of <I>Contemporary Latin America</I> 2011)</p> <p>Building on his pathbreaking work on emerging transnational states, classes, and relations of production, William Robinson reveals the deepening, overlapping, and ultimately unsustainable global crises of legitimacy, overaccumulation, and polarization. Robinson argues with great analytical lucidity that Latin America's current 'left turn,' more than a manifestation of turbulence, is a struggle over the shape of the new world to come.</P> (Greg Grandin, author of <I>Empire's Workshop: Latin America, the United States, and the Rise of the New Imperialism</I> )</p> <p>Robinson's book is a model for critical globalization studies&#x2014;empirically grounded and theoretically sophisticated. He shows us how Latin America is on the frontlines in the struggle to determine what will succeed the neoliberal paradigm of the capitalist global order.</P> (Michael Hardt, coauthor of <I>Empire</I> and <I>Multitude</I> )</p> <p>A provocative and worthwhile read for those interested in the political economy of Latin America as well as the processes of globalization.</P> (Sean Burges <i>International Affairs</i> )</p> <p> <b>From the Back Cover</b></p> <p>2009 Best Book, International Political Economy Group of the British International Studies Association</P> <p>This ambitious volume chronicles and analyzes from a critical globalization perspective the social, economic, and political changes sweeping across Latin America from the 1970s through the present day. William I. Robinson summarizes his theory of globalization and discusses how Latin America&#x2019;s political economy has changed as the states integrate into the new global production and financial system, focusing specifically on the rise of nontraditional agricultural exports, the explosion of <I>maquiladoras</I>, transnational tourism, and the export of labor and import of remittances. He follows with an overview of the clash among global capitalist forces, neoliberalism, and the new left in Latin America, looking closely at the challenges and dilemmas faced by resistance movements and at their prospects for success.</P> <p>"A scathing indictment of neoliberal globalization from an explicitly anti-capitalist perspective."&#x2014; <I>Monthly Review</I></P> <p>"An important book for anyone interested in where our imperiled planet is headed."&#x2014; <I>San Francisco Bay Guardian</P> <p></I>"Robinson's latest book offers brilliant insight into the underlying causes and current dilemmas of globalization."&#x2014; <I>NACLA Report on the Americas</P> <p></I><B>William I.
