(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #285 - Culture, In subscription: Alain Bihr, " The First Age of Capitalism (1415-1763)" (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]
Thu, 26 Jul 2018 10:30:48 +0300
Our comrade Alain Bihr tackled a vast history of the development of capitalism in three
volumes. It starts with the beginning, " infancy " which the XV th to the mid-eighteenth
th century, sees Western Europe from the onslaught of the three Americas, Africa and Asia.
---- Through forced and unfair trade, unequal exchange or, even more directly, the
reduction to serfdom or slavery of their populations, the companies affected by the
initial European expansion saw their own trade routes. disturbed exchange, their altered
productive structures, their traditional political powers instrumentalized or destroyed.
With the main result of supporting the formation dynamics of capitalism in Europe itself.
Far from falling into misery, however, the author insists on the resistance that these
companies have been able to oppose to Europeans. Unequal resistance, a function of their
previous historical development, to which the work pays great attention each time, thus
providing a panorama of the world at the dawn of modern times.
Finally, Alain Bihr highlights the differences between the European states that will
embark on this adventure, the rivalries and conflicts that will oppose them and
redistribute the cards between them on different occasions, the very unequal benefits they
will derive from them.
