Example text

Wallerstein argues there are three fundamental types of world-systems: world-economies, world-empires, and minisystems. A world-system typically is composed of many different states. These states trade and war with one another. This is called a world-economy. If one state succeeds in conquering the others, thus uniting it politically, Wallerstein calls it a world-empire. Typically, one state in a world-economy eventually conquers, or at least dominates, the others, transforming it into a world-empire.

First, I present brief examples of world-systems research that can take students into the nuts and bolts of the research. I sought examples that were different, yet interesting and topical. Second, I provide students (and sometimes their teachers) brief introductions to how world-systems analysis is used outside sociology—the “home discipline” of world-systems analysis. These chapters describe a bit about how those other disciplines work and use world-systems analysis, introducing basic readings and a road map to help students to use those disciplines in their own research papers.
