About the Author

Zak Cope is the author of The Wealth of (Some) Nations (Pluto, 2019) Divided World Divided Class: Global Political Economy and the Stratification of Labour Under Capitalism (Kersplebedeb, 2015), He is co-editor of the Journal of Labor and Society and the Encyclopedia of Imperialism and Anti-Imperialism.


'This is simply the most significant book published on the political economy of imperialism in the 21st Century, written by the foremost scholar of global imperialism today. Cope lays bare the fundamental structural contradiction in contemporary global capitalism: the pervasive class divisions which divide the Global North from South and are indelibly imprinted in the historical legacy of Western imperialism' -- Immanuel Ness, author of 'Southern Insurgency: The Coming of the Global Working Class' 'Global inequality isn't natural; it's created. Zak Cope explains how the rules of the international economy have been designed to benefit a few powerful nations in the Global North at the expense of most of the rest of the world. This is a brilliant intervention from one of the best scholars in the field' -- Jason Hickel, Goldsmiths, University of London 'Highly important and timely. This book should be required reading for anyone interested in understanding the nature of current global capitalism, rather than remaining hoodwinked by the mythology of equality and liberty' -- Amiya Bagchi, Monash University
