Empire in the Age of Globalisation is perfect for students of globalisation and international studies. It is a comprehensive critical introduction to 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 argues that we can only approach a proper understanding of the contemporary world order by linking globalisation to debates on capitalism, imperialism and universal human rights. He explores US hegemony in this light, showing how ‘liberal internationalism’ cannot be separated from capitalism, neo-liberalism and US empire building. Covering all the major issues, from globalisation theory to international economics, cultural imperialism and global governance, this will be of interest to anyone looking for a refreshing analytical approach.
