His books include The Long Twentieth Century, Adam Smith in Beijing, and, with Beverly Silver, Chaos and Governance in the Modern World System.

Reviews

"A vivid, fact-filled expose of the cyclical monetary forces that surge through human society."--Observer Review

"The Long Twentieth Century has the grandeur of a sprawling epic and the schematic grace of a Richard Neutra blueprint ... It is the single most useful text on offer for anyone who wants to narrate the story of world capitalism--from its nascent form on the rim of the Mediterranean to the current reach of the United States' empire, and beyond."--Los Angeles Review of Books
