First Editions in English of 'The Sociology of Imperialism' (1919) and 'Social Classes in an Ethnically Homogeneous Environment' (1927), both originally published in Archiv für Sozialwissenschaft und Sozialpolitik. xxv, 221 pp. Original cloth. Very Good, without dust jacket. Sweezy's Introduction = pp. vii-xxv. 'Joseph Schumpeter ([1919] 1951, 6) considered imperialism to be 'the objectless disposition on the part of the state to unlimited forcible expansion.' Although Schumpeter does not specifically address Japanese imperialism, he provides a wide range of historical examples to show that nations and classes seek expansion only for the sake of expanding and dominion only for the sake of ruling. The bellicosity of an autocratic state derives from 'the necessities of its social structure, from the inherited dispositions of its ruling class, rather than from the immediate advantages to be derived from the conquest' (59). As a country becomes more capitalistic, the energy for war decreases as the 'competitive system absorbs the full energies of most of the people at all economic levels' (69). Schumpeter viewed imperialism as an atavism in the social structure of capitalist states, an element from prior history that affects emotional reactions (65)' (Bill Gordon, 'Explanations of Japan’s Imperialistic Expansion, 1894-1910', on Gordon's Wesleyan University Web page). 'As one whose native language is German, this reviewer feels it necessary to point out that the style of the English translation is not simply adequate but superior to the original' (Reinhard Bendix, review for The American Journal of Sociology, Vol. 57, No. 2, Sept., 1951, pp. 198-200). Please note: the Kelley edition was not published in 1951; it is a later reprint of this original 1951 edition published by Basil Blackwell. N° de ref. de la librería 15919
