In an increasingly turbulent political landscape, this series addresses disputed theoretical and conceptual issues within the realms of political sociology and political economy, to evaluate the shifting dynamics of global power in the modern age. With attention to the ever-changing contours of economic and political world power, Capitalism, Power and the Imperial State invites contributions from scholars looking to advance the debate between theorists of globalization and advocates of class analysis and imperialism, as well as those interested in unpacking the economic configurations of power. Focusing on how power affects, and is affected by, both the higher and lower ranks of society, it seeks to investigate the relationship between the capitalist state and imperial power, the rise of emerging regional rivalries, and polarization within the imperial state between sectors of the ‘deep state’ and the regime. A timely and important opportunity to review the ongoing crisis of the capitalist state, and to evaluate the social and political factors that influence the balance of global power in the twenty-first century, this series invites research which pays attention to the impact of the class struggle on global alignments of power, and the impact of such power on the global class war between capital and labour.
