About this product
- DescriptionThe conquest of the Americas inaugurated the slow accumulation of resources and the imperceptible structural transformations that culminated in the Industrial Revolution. From that moment on, capitalism grew and expanded with a dynamism and adaptability that are w all too familiar, profiting from wars and even managing to rebound after a series of devastating ecomic crises. In this highly-anticipated updated edition, Beaud extends one of the major strengths of the original: the interweaving of social, political, and ecomic factors in the context of history. At the same time, Beaud's analysis provides a realistic and thorough examination of the developments of capitalism in the last twenty years, including globalization, the accelerating speed of capital transfer, and the collapse of the Soviet empire and the subsequent absorption of its population into the world market. This new edition also offers a completely revised format that integrates diagrams and flow-charts t previously available in the English-language edition. Beaud offers a synthesis of this history of capitalism over five centuries, showing how it has been simultaneously ecomic and political and ideological; simultaneously national and multinational; simultaneously liberating and oppressive, destructive and creative. Interweaving the history of key events, movements, and ideas with both theoretical modeling and carefully selected quantitative data, Beaud shows how capitalism grew and expanded, to whose benefit, and at whose expense.
