The essays in this volume highlight the different views taken of the world economic system. The first two essays are firmly grounded in the world system of Immanuel Wallerstein. Other essays offer alternative concepts and discuss them in the light of contemporary events -- newly industrializing nations and Third World coalitions. In the final section, Hollist and Rosenau reach conflicting conclusions as to where the world system, and the study of it, are proceding.

'...the collection captures a wide range of alternative approaches that international relations and world-system scholars might profitably be jointly aware of. This heightened awareness surely will stimulate even greater dialogue, the goal of the editors.' -- Contemporary Sociology, Vol 12 No 6, November 1983
