'The most significant book published on the political economy of imperialism in the 21st century, written by the foremost scholar of global imperialism today.' -- Immanuel Ness, author of 'Southern Insurgency: The Coming of the Global Working Class'
'Global inequality isn't natural; it's created. Zak Cope explains how the rules of the international economy have been designed to benefit a few powerful nations in the Global North at the expense of most of the rest of the world. A brilliant intervention from one of the best scholars in the field.' -- Jason Hickel, Goldsmiths, University of London
'Highly important and timely. Required reading for anyone interested in understanding the nature of current global capitalism, rather than remaining hoodwinked by the mythology of equality and liberty' -- Amiya Bagchi, Monash University
'Powerfully challenges the imperialism-denial dominating Marxist theory and practice in Europe and North America and influential elsewhere. Whether or not you agree with all its arguments and conclusions, you'll find this to be a stimulating and thought-provoking book' -- John Smith, author of 'Imperialism in the Twenty-First Century'
