The purpose of the article is to analyse Immanuel Wallerstein's approach towards social change and to compare it with the concept of macrosocial change in modernization theories. The main thesis proposed by the authoress is that although Immanuel Wallerstein declares that perception of social change as framed by the 'ahistorical models' (such bias being typical of modernization theories) should be abandoned, he nevertheless advances a model which is equally ahistorical..
