Excerpt

This volume reflects the intellectual interest of the editors in navigating a sprawling research territory in political economy – the study of phases of capitalist development. the idea for the volume originated with Richard Westra following the publication of his article ‘Periodizing Capitalism and the Political Economy of Post-War Japan’ in Journal of Contemporary Asia. That elicited a response from a small us publishing house that proposed he edit a collection of essays on the topic of periodizing capitalism. From there the idea blossomed into the major collaborative effort that is this volume. Following extensive preparatory discussions among the editors, this effort entailed the selection and forwarding of invitations to world-renowned political economists representing a broad range of perspectives. All were asked to focus upon what the editors believed to be the most important questions facing the research domain of phases of capitalist development. Beyond this rudimentary prompting however the contributors were given complete intellectual freedom and encouragement to expound upon or defend their own position. the editors wish to acknowledge the foresight of Palgrave Publishers for agreeing to publish such an extended collection of essays.
