New Book by Prof Sampie Terreblanche

Posted by Melt van Schoor on 2014-09-19

Sampie Terreblanche, retired professor formerly at the Department of Economics, has published a new book, "Western Empires, Christianity, and the Inequalities between the West and the Rest (1500-2010)".

In the book, Prof Terreblanche takes a critical look at how social and economic inequality became entrenched in the current world order dominated by Western powers since the 1500s. The book also offers the thesis that unrestrained capitalism lies at the root of the unsustainability of the Western empires, as they end up with growing inequality, environmental damage and unmanageable financial market risks.

The book is available at bookstores or at kalahari.net.
