The Logic of Imperialism

By Albert Szymanski
Praeger, 1981
598 pp.

A sociologist from the University of Oregon marshals a good deal of empirical material to show why Lenin's theory of imperialism does better than later modifications, especially those concerning dependency, to "account fairly well for present-day reality." He concludes that America's short experiment with "imperialism with a human face" in the Carter Administration was bound to give way to greater use of military force, but that this will not "hold back the revolutionary wave sweeping the less-developed world."
