David Palumbo-Liu, Bruce Robbins, Nirvana Tanoukhi. Introduction The Most Important Thing Happening. Wallerstein did not pause to note this problem. Nor did he argue the priority of the global hierarchy issue over all others. He simply took it for granted. I had a gut feeling in the 1950s, Immanuel Wallerstein writes fifty years later, that the most important thing happening in the twentieth century was the struggle to overcome the control by the West of the rest of the world. 1 In the 1950s Wallerstein (born in 1930) was in his twenties. The gut feelings thinkers have in their twenties tend to be self-formative.

According to Wallerstein, this world system has been developing since the sixteenth century, and the level . The World-System model draws attention to how the roles of nations in the world system are constantly reproduced by existing trading relations.

According to Wallerstein, this world system has been developing since the sixteenth century, and the level of economic development can be explained by understanding each country's place and role in the world economic system. However, this is not a market of equal partners.

These are such complex matters that Kliger might have been more precise in his use of the term "truth" in the close readings by which he refutes such assumptions. That quibble notwithstanding, Kliger has written a sophisticated and inspired book.

In this collection of essays, leading cultural theorists consider the meaning and implications of world-scale humanist scholarship by engaging with Immanuel Wallerstein’s world-systems analysis. The renowned sociologist developed his influential critical framework to explain the historical and continuing exploitation of the rest of the world by the West. World-systems analysis reflects Wallerstein’s conviction that understanding global inequality requires thinking on a global scale. Humanists have often criticized his theory as insufficiently attentive to values and objects of knowledge such as culture, agency, difference, subjectivity, and the local. The editors of this collection do not deny the validity of those criticisms; instead, they offer Wallerstein’s world-systems analysis as a well-developed vision of the world scale for humanists to think with and against. Scholars of comparative literature, gender, geography, history, law, race, and sociology consider what thinking on the world scale might mean for particular disciplinary practices, knowledge formations, and objects of study. Several essays offer broader reflections on what is at stake for the study of culture in decisions to adopt or reject world-scale thinking. In a brief essay, Immanuel Wallerstein situates world-systems analysis vis-à-vis the humanities.
