Whose Right to Intervene?
From the "Discovery" of America to Today

Immanuel Wallerstein is the founder and director of the Fernand Braudel Center for the Study of Economies, Historical Systems, and Civilizations in Binghamton. He is also the former President of the International Sociological Association. Professor Wallerstein has published numerous books and articles in three domains of world-systems analysis: the historical development of the modern world-system, the contemporary crisis of the capitalist world-economy and the structures of knowledge. His so-called "World-Systems Theory" is a politico-economic and comparative macro-theory of social development, in particular capitalism. His main writings include The Modern World-System, Utopistics, or Historical Choices for the Twenty-first Century, and Unthinking Social Science: The Limits of Nineteenth-Century Paradigms.
