This highly successful text has been updated and revised to take account of new developments in international political economy, notably the East Asian crisis, and the deepening crisis of African society. It also addresses recent forms of international 'management of instability' that are beginning to emerge as contemporary forms of imperialist globalism. At the same time, more attention is paid to the gathering 'mosquito cloud' of local resistance movements around the world.

'[Very] clearly written and copiously referenced. Hoogvelt's [book] is especially good as a comprehensive guide for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students.' - Michael Keaney, Millennium
