      1. Read as a kind of pre-history of globalization when first published in 1994, this book traces the linkages between capital accumulation and nation-state formation over the last 700 years. Going beyond this historical perspective, Arrighi concludes with a discussion of the roots of American hegemony and why it is destined to decline.
