Immanuel Wallerstein (who provided the foreword to these volumes) is probably the most prominent advocate of world-systems theory, but as this collection of 32 articles demonstrates, there are a number of advocates of this perspective within the American Sociological Association. Presented by Dunaway (sociology, Virginia Tech) the papers explore a number of issues of crisis and resistance to the structural system of global politics and economics and offer analyses designed to extend the scope of world systems theory to deal with issues of the environment, urbanization, and superpower hegemony.
