The Ideology of Late Imperialism
The Return of the Geopolitics of the Second International
In 1990, when renowned Indian Marxian economist Prabhat Patnaik asked "Whatever Happened to Imperialism?," once vibrant and influential schools of theories on imperialism were at a postwar historic low. When he left the West to return to India in 1974, imperialism was at the center of all Marxist discussions. But when, he came back to the West merely fifteen years later, however, imperialism already seemed out of fashion. The retreat from the question of imperialism has marked a return of what we can call Second International politics.
