Samir Amin, one of the twentieth century's leading radical intellectuals, has lived his personal and political life at the intersection of various cultures and international progressive currents - from Egypt to France to West Africa, from communism to national-liberation socialism, Maoism and finally a mature anti-imperialism. His memoirs are not only a fascinating personal narrative but a penetrating historical-political analysis, as well as an introduction to his most important theoretical contributions. They offer a unique vantage point for observing the operations of global capitalism and the evolution, crises and potentialities of radical movements, especially in the third world. This book will be invaluable not only to readers interested in Amin's profoundly influential work or in the history of the global left but to anyone concerned with today's worldwide struggles against capitalist globalization.
