About the Author

Etienne Balibar is a French Marxist philosopher and the most celebrated student of Louis Althusser. He is also one of the leading exponents of French Marxist philosophy and the author of "Spinoza and Politics," "The Philosophy of Marx" and co-author of "Race, Nation and Class" and "Reading Capital." Immanuel Wallerstein is director of the Fernand Braudel Center at the State University of New York. His books include a three-volume study, "The Modern World-System," "Historical Capitalism," and, cowritten with Etienne Balibar, "Race, Nation, Class."

By Morelliana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I do not recommend buying this edition of the book (the new one--white cover, title in blue). They made it almost pocket-size without altering the page count of the original edition. So the type is squashed--you practically need a magnifying lens to read the book. I guess it's a handy size if you want to slip Balibar & Wallerstein in your back pocket for reading on the subway or at the beach (ha ha, I'm so funny), but I really think they should have resized it and recounted the pages.
A Brilliant Exploration of the Group Distinctions that Sustain Capitalism 10 Nov. 2014
By Matthew D. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Broadly speaking, this book examines the ways in which capitalist societies reconcile the contradictory imperatives of creating a common social and institutional space in which markets can function (the system of nation-states), based on an ideology of universalism and formal equality among citizens, and the need to make the unequal distribution of wealth and income, within states and globally, appear "natural," using distinctions among groups (races, ethnicities, genders, classes, citizens of different states).

Balibar and Wallerstein do so quite brilliantly, exploring topics such as racism, the construction of nationalities and nation-states, the role of economic classes, and the example of the imposition of western-style states on ancient ethnic groups in Sub-Saharan Africa. Balibar and Wallerstein complement each other nicely in this effort. Balibar's emphasis is slightly more formal and philosophical, while Wallerstein's is slightly more historical and empirical. Together, they produce a work which explores issues that are fundamental to the functioning of global capitalism, that is both deeply informed and methodologically sophisticated.
