By Ray Kiely
This ebook examines the connection among US hegemony and modern globalisation. Many introductory textbooks on globalisation are usually simplistic and conservative. This ebook strikes issues ahead, delivering a serious overview of the globalisation debate. Kiely finds the weaknesses of globalisation idea, and argues that we will simply process a formal knowing of the modern international order by means of linking globalisation to debates on capitalism, imperialism, neo-liberalism and common human rights. He explores US hegemony within the mild of those concerns, displaying how 'liberal internationalism' can't be separated from capitalism, neo-liberalism and US empire-building.Perfect for college students of globalisation and foreign experiences, the booklet covers the next concerns: theories of globalisation and the connection among capitalism, neo-liberalism and globalisation; the query of kingdom sovereignty, associations of worldwide governance, liberal internationalism, cosmopolitanism, realism, imperialism, ‘September 11th’, the Bush II management and the warfare in Iraq; Bretton Woods, improvement, neo-Keynesian and neo-liberal capitalism, capital flows, debt, US hegemony and international finance, and worldwide poverty and inequality; cultural imperialism, Americanisation, common human rights, democracy and freedom, and cultural standardisation; and modern globalisation, US imperialism, and the query of revolutionary choices to ‘actually latest globalisation’.
