Hegemony tells the story of the drive to create consumer capitalism abroad through political pressure and the promise of goods for mass consumption. In contrast to the recent literature on America as empire, it explains that the primary goal of the foreign and economic policies of the United States is a world which increasingly reflects the American way of doing business, not the formation or management of an empire. Contextualizing both the Iraq war and recent plant closings in the U.S., noted author John Agnew shows how American hegemony has created a world in which power is no longer only shaped territorially. He argues in a sobering conclusion that we are consequently entering a new era of global power, one in which the world the US has made no longer works to its singular advantage.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An excellent book, Hegemony mounts an effective and scholarly challenge to a great deal of rather simplistic recent work on American empire. Agnew's arguments are convincing, and 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 criticizes argues, but a global project inextricably implicated with the ways in which capitalist globalization works."-Leslie Sklair, Professor of Sociology, London School of Economics and Political Science
"This innovative, lucid study of 'new geographies of power' can and should be read by a wide audience.... Essential."-Choice
