Klemens Kaps and Andrea Komlosy (edd.), Centers and Peripheries Revisited: Polycentric Connections or Entangled Hierarchies? Review (Fernand Braudel Center), Special Issue XXXVI, 3-4 (2013) Binghamton, NY 2016.
This special issue is the result of a session held on the ENIUGH congress in Paris, in September 2014. The issue consists of four articles and an introductory essay and addresses a critical revision of world system analysis and the center-periphery concept in particular, exploring possible bridges with the postcolonial approach and pleading for a more concise regional differentiation as well as for temporal and spatial dynamics. In the context of these considerations and reflections, the special issue aims to present case studies over a wide temporal and spatial range, reaching from the Middle Ages to the early 21st century, encompassing Eurasia, Latin America, China and Central Europe.
