Product Details


“Arrighi is a student of the French historian Fernand Braudel, and the book has the range and ambition of Braudel’s work.”—Financial Times

Adam Smith in Beijing follows, and completes, his previous volume The Long Twentieth Century. Together they constitute a stunning work of world history with theoretical and political intent whose intellectual roots lie in a mix of radical historiographical traditions.”—Radical Philosophy

“This book is an impressive result; it will have a major impact … Arrighi argues his case in great detail—using an elaborate exegesis of The Wealth of Nations, which will send many readers back to that text in amazement.”—Economic and Political Weekly
