The essays gathered here relate the writings of Antonio Gramsci and others to the modern reconstruction of historical materialist concepts of worldwide relations. The contributors review the contradiction among globalizing and territorially based mostly social and political forces in the context of earlier, current, and long term world orders, and see the surfacing planet buy as going through a structural transformation, a “triple crisis” involving economic, political and “socio-cultural” alter. The prevailing trend of the 1980s and early 1990s toward the marketization and commodification of social relations qualified prospects the contributors to argue that socialism needs to be redefined absent from the totalizing visions linked with Marxism-Leninism, toward the concept of the self defense of modern society and social selection to counter the disintegrating and atomizing outcomes of globalizing and unplanned market forces.
