Surfing the Troubled Waters of `Global Turbulence': A Comment
Author: Weeks, John

Abstract:Those familiar with the contributions of Robert Brenner to understanding of the historical development of capitalism, and his devastating critique of the `regulation school' must, like myself, have felt a sense of anticipation as they began his recent volume on global capitalism since the end of World War Two. While the editor's introduction was pretentious to the point of embarrassment, this unfortunate excursion into naive idolatry should not be attributed to the author himself. However, even those most supportive of Brenner's previous work (again, such as myself), could not help but be disappointed by the contents of `;Global Turbulence'.
