      1. Here famed sociologist and world-systems analyst Wallerstein interprets the events of 1989, arguing that the decline of US hegemony-linked to a stage in capitalist world economic development-actually made the collapse of the socialist regimes possible. Furthermore, he discusses the increasing unity and strength of the European Union as a product of this decline.
