    The semi-periphery, in the form of a state or a production zone within the middle tiers of world production was traditionally regarded as a mediator between the advanced and the 'underdeveloped' parts of the world and was often marked by instability and as a potential revolutionary agent. Work and production continue to divide the rich and the poor, but the actual methods and possibility for the anti-systemic change of globalizing capitalism is revisited in this book. Contributors to this volume speak to one another across chapters to ask what exactly the relevance of the semi-periphery will be. Will it be a transformative entity or not, in the context of the emergence of 'globalization' and specific 'world orders' as forms of explanations within World Politics? This collection re-examines and re-assesses the role of the semi-periphery in world politics and argues that the processes of globalization have led us to widen our understanding of the semi-periphery, through a range of case studies as well as theoretical chapters.
