Not an endorsement

Not an endorsement of Adam Smith in Beijing:
This latest work, however, illustrates why world-systems theory has found little purchase except in the most intellectually undemanding environments (including, apparently, sociology departments)...

The book offers more insight into the sad state of intellectual development in sociology departments, even at such prestigious institutions as Johns Hopkins, than it does into the realities of wealth and poverty in the world economy.
Don't read the whole thing and forget about the shameful book.
