Tom Brass takes the lessons drawn by Development Studies and deftly applies them to metropolitan capitalist nations.

Since its inception, Development Studies has tended to restrict its critical enquiries to nations in the ‘Third World.’ The field’s important studies of labor markets, who circulates within them, and the controversies such issues generate, have hitherto been confined ’lesser developed’ societies. In this important collection, drawing from key texts over the course Tom Brass’s career, these concerns are deftly deployed to examine how these same phenomena affect metropolitan capitalist countries.

The reviews, review essays, and essays collected here examine these issues that are now relevant to metropolitan capitalism, as well as their political and ideological effects and implications
