world-system theory is an historical description of the growth of capitalist economic system, from
the core to the periphery, and of the effects of this growth on capitalistic and pre-capitalist alike.
One of the central propositions of world-systems theory are that capitalism is organized globally
rather than nationally and that the dominant core regions develop advanced industrial systems and
exploit the raw materials of the periphery. World-system theory has contributed to the literature in
the field of sociology specifically by documenting the expansion of capitalism across the globe.
Shannon describes the purpose of world-systems theory as an explanation of the amalgamation of
the social, political, and economic histories of contemporary societies. He explains that the central
principal of the world-systems theory was to create an alternative to modernization and dependency
theory’s explanation of contemporary social change.
Like Wallerstein, Shannon emphasizes the Marxist origin of world-system theory. He
repeatedly emphasizes the imbalanced relationship between the core and the periphery, which was
one of the basic tenets of Marxist theory. Shannon suggests that Marx felt that the role of power
was one of the most important factors in social relationships, in addition to emphasizing the
exploitation of a dominant social class over other social classes which led to a cycle of constant
