Highly critical and controversial, this comparative volume, uses a well-established centre-periphery model (from World-Systems Theory and Dependency Theory) to study free-trade agreements, focusing on three countries (Australia, Canada and Mexico) with comparable locations within global capitalism as the basis for comparison. For most of the twentieth century, Australia, Canada and Mexico were engaged in national projects of development. By the end of the twentieth century, all three had departed significantly from these projects under the weight of neoliberal globalism, symbolized by the signing of free trade agreements with the United States. This shift of economic paradigm towards neoliberalism and the political shift in the international political economy to one of unparalleled U.S. hegemony raises the spectre of ‘re-peripheralisation’ for all three countries.Arguing that ‘re-peripheralisation’ is already underway in all three countries and can only be reversed by adopting alternative projects appropriate to the twenty-first century, this book is a valuable resource for all students of international trade and politics.
