Reviews

"I loved this book! It is so valuable and clearly written! Mass Education, Global Capital, and the World highlights the intense relevance of Wallerstein's and Mészáros's work to those of us within the Marxist and the critical pedagogy traditions seeking democratic and just systemic alternatives to capitalism and to education within and against capitalism." Dave Hill, Research Professor of Education at Anglia Ruskin University, UK, and Marxist educational and political activist

"This volume illuminates the scholarship of two major theorists of the capitalist world-system, who examine its evolution over the past 500 years and its uncertain future. The historical, holistic social science perspectives of Immanuel Wallerstein and István Mészáros provide essential analytical tools for understanding the structures and processes by which the global economy generates the current international crises in economies and societies. More than that, as this invaluable book highlights, world-systems analysis provides the comprehensive long view that enables educators and researchers to envision alternative futures that are more democratic, peaceful, and globally just." Robert F. Arnove, Chancellor's Professor Emeritus of Education at Indiana University, Bloomington, USA
