Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy is widely considered one of the greatest works on social theory written in the 20th century. Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 best non-fiction books of the twentieth century and by The Times Literary Supplement as one of the 100 most influential books since World War II. “Schumpeter was the most farsighted of twentieth-century economists. His focus on capitalism and creative destruction made him the prophet of globalization” (The Nation).
