Telling the story of the drive to create consumer capitalism abroad through political pressure, this book explains that the primary goal of the foreign and economic policies of the United States is a world which reflects their way of doing business. It shows how this drive for global hegemony is now backfiring.
"This is an important and challenging book, based on not only wide reading but also deep thinking over several decades. It is a tour de force that should be widely used to stimulate thinking about global futures beyond the simplistic offerings of too many politicians and commentators." Environment and Planning A "This innovative, lucid study of "new geographies of power" can and should be read by a wide audience, including all undergraduates majoring in humanities and social science disciplines." CHOICE "It is an excellent manuscript, mounting an effective and scholarly challenge to a great deal of rather simplistic recent work on American Empire. His arguments about hegemony are convincing, and they are interesting. Perhaps the most compelling is his attempt to show that hegemony is not simply a national project, as most of the Empire genre he criticises argue, but a global project inextricably implicated with the ways in which capitalist globalization work." Leslie Sklair "In Hegemony, which is a contribution to the literatures on both globalization and US foreign policy, John Agnew offers some cogent arguments about the rise of US hegemony and its effects on other countries. He convincingly critiques international relations theorists who characterize the United States as an empire...[and] provides a welcome riposte to international relations theorists who focus solely on territorial power." International Studies Review "An excellent and noteworthy addition to the literature...the book offers a much-needed bridge between the recent literature on American empire in geography (with its tendencies toward critical geopolitics) and new cultural histories of American neocolonialism...Hegemony deserves to be widely read...and Agnew...applauded for his tight, compelling, and path breaking work."
