This volume reiterates the relevance of imperialism in the present, as a continuous arrangement, from the early years of empire-colonies to the prevailing pattern of expropriation across the globe. While imperialism as an arrangement of exploitation has sustained over ages, measures deployed to achieve the goals have gone through variations, depending on the network of the prevailing power structure. Providing a historical as well as a conceptual account of imperialism in its `classical' context, this collection brings to the fore an underlying unity which runs across the diverse pattern of imperialist order over time. Dealing with theory, the past and the contemporary, the study concludes by delving into the current conjuncture in Latin America, the United States and Asia.

The Changing Face of Imperialism will provide fresh ideas for future research into the shifting patterns of expropriation - spanning the early years of sea-borne plunder and the empire-colonies of nineteenth-century to contemporary capitalism, which is rooted in neoliberalism, globalization and free market ideology.

With contributions from major experts in the field, this book will be a significant intervention. It will be of interest to scholars and researchers of economics, politics, sociology and history, especially those dealing with imperial history and colonialism.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`The Changing Face of Imperialism combines the analyses from a set of most competent Indian thinkers. An enlightening collection which simultaneously reminds the reader of the continuities of that major facet of capitalism through the successive phases of its global deployment and gives its full importance to the changes associated with the dominance of contemporary finance capital. An essential reading to understand the challenges of our time.'

Samir Amin, Director, Third World Forum, Dakar and former Director, Institut Africain de Developpement Economique et de Planification (IDEP) and Professor at the Universities of Poitiers, Dakar and Paris

`A very timely volume which going against the current forcefully reminds us that imperialist surplus appropriation continues to occur in the contemporary world though formal colonies are long gone. The authors of this volume are globally renowned specialists in their respective areas and the volume has successfully brought them together to make an important common point.'

Aditya Mukherjee, Professor of Modern History, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India
