Triggered by the profound financial and economic crises,
increasing ecological degradation, rising social struggles
and political and military conflicts, the structures of the
world political economy seem to be, in the early 21st
century, in a process of epoch-making transformation.
Employing a world-historical and comparative perspective,
the 14 contributions brought together in this volume deal
with three core issues of global structures and dynamics:
Firstly, the degree of stability and change of global
hierachical structures and economic and social inequalities;
secondly, the transformation of global and national
political structures; and, thirdly, global ecological change
and its impact on the structures of the world-economy, the
world polity and the world society.
