Exploitation Within the Core: Historicizing Eastern North Carolina as an Internal and External Periphery

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

World-system treatments frequently focus on global interdependencies among nation-states. In contrast, this paper uses world-systems analysis as a framework for understanding the historical development of a region within a nation-state; the eastern region of the State of North Carolina. It focuses on the role of the state in mediating the region’s uneven development relative to the United States’ rise to hegemonic status. A variety of secondary sources are used to explain the historical development of Eastern North Carolina as both an external and internal periphery within a modern capitalist economy. The region possesses a disarticulated economy, characterized by surplus value extraction and the penetration of peripheral-style capitalism. These dynamics provide a basis for explaining the region’s state of unequal development relative to other regions in the nation and globe. This explanation contributes to world-systems theory by demonstrating how global processes are reflected at the sub-national and national levels.
