Scholars of politics, art, literature, and sociology show how Leon Trotsky's concepts of the production of dynamic interdependence between advanced and backward regions within a singular world system, the anti-linear compression of distinct temporal states in a single spatial location, and the consequent privileging of temporal and economic backwardness as a driver of transformation have led to the concept of uneven and combined development within the field of international relations. They cover critiques of Eurocentrism, towards a theory of culture, and reading under the sign of uneven and combined development. (Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
