Introduction. centre and periphery: New bases for negotiation

Phases of radical change—stormy times—have a well-known feature which recalls some natural phenomena. They build up gradually and progressively, but the signs and warnings of the process—though they do not escape the keenest or most experienced observers—are not enough to forecast the form and force they will ultimately have, and still less their later repercussions. Thus, when the storm breaks there is always surprise, confusion, sometimes panic, but also resolute attempts to understand what has happened and to face up to the new situation. This is what has occurred in the present state of international turbulence, brought to a head by the so-called energy crisis.
