    Lenin thesis and the notions of contemporary imperialism advanced by Prabhat Patnaik and Satyaki Roy. It is being reviewed on the internet by supporters and critics who self-evidently have not read all of its pages. Changes in contemporary capitalism require an updating of definitions and analysis of social classes, class struggles, political parties, social movements and the ideological forms in which they express their modes of action in the transformation of societies. Harmondsworth: Penguin Books, The social and environmental costs of contemporary capitalism are prohibitive.

    Piketty finds the right's hostility strange. The imposition of free trade policies and the increasing privatization of social services have facilitated the accumulation of fabulous wealth for the owners of capital at the expense of working people and the environment worldwide. How does imperialism constitute the institutional conditions of social reproduction that, in turn, constitute the reproduction of the contemporary capitalist system? To do this, the nation-state is invaluable in maintaining the uneven world through borders, not only for cross-border rentier capital flows but also to ensure conditions of global labor arbitrage for the purpose of value capture. The Changing Face of Imperialism, rich in its intellectual offerings, raises further questions.

    Situated largely within the Marxist debates on imperialism—but addressing the liberal formulations too—The Changing Face of Imperialism: Colonialism to Contemporary Capitalism is an important intervention regarding the material basis of imperialism and its three-hundred-year-old history of unequal power relations. New York: Guilford Press, A Dictionary of Marxist Thought. The book consists of an introduction by the editors, Sunanda Sen and Maria Cristina Marcuzzo, followed by fourteen chapters arranged thematically.
