You could probably guess that Callinicos supports the third view.

And he seems to find a lot more nuance in his own position than he does in the other two. I guess that’s to be expected, as the Left has done enough self-cannibalism over the years. One of the stranger aspects is that he readily admits that David Harvey, who shares his view, basically made a stronger case for it in his The New Imperialism than Callinicos himself did the first time around.

This time he promises to back up his own claims as well as Harvey’s, presumably with empirical evidence, which is something that in my opinion has been dearly missing from these types of debates on imperialism.

Obviously, the evidence is extremely complex, contradictory, difficult to parse, and subject to various interpretations. But I sorta thought the whole point of Marxism was to reject the “simplify and specialize” ethos of positivism.

At any rate, I hope the empirical strand within Marxism continues and I really hope it doesn’t end as badly imperialims the ironically-titled “Non-Bullshit Globa movement of the 80’s.

Callinicos explores these questions in this wide-ranging book. In the first part, he critically assesses the classical theories of imperialism developed in the era of the First World War by Marxists such as Lenin, Luxemburg, and Bukharin and by the Liberal economist J. He then outlines a theory of the relationship between capitalism as an economic system and the international state system, carving out a distinctive position compared to other contemporary theorists of empire and imperialism such as Antonio Negri, David Harvey, Giovanni Arrighi, and Ellen Wood.

In the second half of Imperialism and Global Political Economy Callinicos traces the history of capitalist imperialism from the Dutch East India Company to the specific patterns of economic and geopolitical competition in the contemporary era of American decline and Chinese expansion.

Imperialism, he concludes, is far from dead. Paperbackpages. Published August 1st by Polity Press first published To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Reading Alex Callinicos’ Imperialism as the West once again began to bomb Iraq for the third time and in the aftermath of a summer of Israeli assault on Palestine, I was struck by the clarity and importance of the Marxist analysis of Imperialism.
