"Socialistic Imperialism" is a 1920 essay by English social scientist and economist John Atkinson Hobson. A book that influenced Lenin and his writing of "Imperialism: The Highest Stage of Capitalism" (1917), this vintage book constitutes a classic study of imperialism within which Hobson attempts to explain the rise of the "new imperialism" in the 1870s and 1880s characterised by Britain and other European countries scrambling to create colonies. John Atkinson Hobson (1858 - 1940) was an English social scientist and economist most famous for his work on imperialism-which notably had an influence on Vladimir Lenin-as well as his theory of underconsumption. His early work also questioned the classical theory of rent and predicted the Neoclassical "marginal productivity" theory of distribution. Other notable works by this author include: "Evolution of Modern Capitalism" (1894), "Problem of the Unemployed" (1896), and "John Ruskin: Social Reformer" (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with an excerpt from "Imperialism, The Highest Stage of Capitalism" by V. I. Lenin.
