In this book, prominent scholars from around the world debate two major themes: the past and future of the capitalist world-economy and ways in which a capitalist economy shapes Western research, the academy, and broader knowledge structures. Putting the two themes together, they also analyze the relationship between scholarship and the rest of the world. The book is published to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Fernand Braudel Center. The Fernand Braudel Center for the Study of Economies, Historical Systems, and Civilzations, located at Binghamton University, SUNY, in Binghamton, New York, analyzes large-scale social change over long periods of historical time.
