"...stimulating, and replete with insights...no serious scholar of international relations can afford to miss it." Political Science Quarterly "This book's innovations include its systematic engagement with the works of Third World intellectuals, its rigorous conceptualization of Euro-Americanism, and a creative recovery of Gramscian Marxism; these features help to ground a very powerful framework for the post-colonial. This book is the product of a tremendous intellectual maturity and sophistication ... the author engages and reworks, with great mastery and success, the best theories of our time." Arturo Escobar, University of North Carolina "This singular text challenges the "common sense" view of contemporary world power in an eminently sensible and sensitive manner. Written with admirable and unfashionable clarity ... it provides a constantly suggestive tour d'horizon of the state of global geopolitics at the start of the millennium." James Dunkerley, Institute of Latin American Studies, University of London "This book is part of the best tradition of research which, particularly since the 1990s, has been showing that a proper understanding of the world is necessarily much larger than a Western understanding of the world ... Slater formulates a new critical theory that is adequate to the realities and possibilities created by the global times in which we live, and fully capable of accounting for the metamorphoses of the growing inequalities between North and South." Boaventura de Sousa Santos, University of Coimbra and University of Wisconsin-Madison "... the book has many positive aspects to be stressed. It is especially strong on the history and present condition of American imperial hegemony and clearly draws on a wide and detailed knowledge of the Latin American scene." Progress in Deveopment Studies "Geopolitics and the Post-Colonial is a rich contribution to the analysis of the imperialist geopolitics of North-South relations inherent in contemporary processes of political and economic globalization." Annals of the Association of American Geographers"It is specifically the reflexive and open-minded way in which Slater analyses post-colonial thinking in relation to geopolitics that makes this a very inspiring work." Development and Change "Provoking, timely and delivered with panache." Gareth A. Jones, London School of Economics and Political Science "A valuable addition to the study of Chilean politics after authoritarian rule, analyzing some of the most important factors explaining the trajectory from a brutal military dictatorship to a stable and rather prosperous democratic regime." Javier A. Couso, Universidad Diego Portales
