Description

This book examines the relationship between US hegemony and contemporary globalisation.

Many introductory textbooks on globalisation tend to be simplistic and conservative.

This book moves things forward, providing a critical review of the globalisation debate.

Kiely reveals the weaknesses of globalisation theory, and argues that we can only approach a proper understanding of the contemporary world order by linking globalisation to debates on capitalism, imperialism, neo-liberalism and universal human rights.

He explores US hegemony in the light of these issues, showing how 'liberal internationalism' cannot be separated from capitalism, neo-liberalism and US empire-building.
