An exciting and original analysis of the development of capitalist classes, such as the Freemasons, that cross national boundaries in the global political economy. This innovative book focuses on:
* an historical perspective on class formation under capitalism and its transnational integration
* international relations between the English-speaking centre of capital and successive contender states.
The author develops a broad-ranging and thorough understanding of class in the process of globalization. He does so within several theoretical frameworks shedding much light on this important topic.
