Great overview of basic issues surrounding a Marxist critique of Eurocentrism. Now to go somewhere else for the details
Most of my classmates dismissed this book as Marxist trash. I was very interested in the notion that the West has appropriated the culture of Greece into its canon when Greece is geographically and culturally much closer to the East.
Kitabı son bölümü (Bamako Çağrısı) beni etkilemedi, hatta kapitalizmin insanlığın geleceği için yegane yapısal aktör olduğunu düşünürken buldum kendimi bu bölümü okurken Bununla birlikte, Orta Doğu'nun küresel pazar ve uluslararası toplulukla girift ilişkilerini Marksist bir perspektiften okuyucunun önüne koyan bir kitap Uzun ve zor okunan bir kitap da değil
Kind of a mixed bag. It talks about a lot of stuff that's important and every so often mentions something useful and interesting but I feel that on the whole it doesn't really come across as coherent.

No es de ninguna manera un libro introductorio a este tema, recomiendo este libro a gente que tenga ya cierto conociemiento del las ideas presentadas en el libro como el Marxismo, la historia del capitalismo, cierto conocimiento de economía etc.Pero es cierto que es un libro fenomenal que presenta nuevas ideas que todavía tienen que ver con nuestro mundo hoy día. Una lectura obligada para todos interesados en el eurocentrismo y como afecta al mundo.
Amin is probably one of the best third world origin intelectuals in XX/I centuries If impartiality is impossible, Amin is trully far away from it This is a deep and wide analysis of the eurocentrism ideology, n his master piece Highly recommended!!
I read Amin's Book; very useful notes.
Samir Amin at his usual brilliant best!
