Imperialism has become a key focus of debate about world politics in the post-9/11 world. This major new text provides a systematic reappraisal of the evolution of the phenomenon and the concept from the 19th century as the basis for a reassessment of Globalization and US hegemony in the world today.

Editorial Reviews

"A clear, comprehensive and compelling assessment of the contemporary debate about empire and its relationship to the history of imperialism and the key classic theories." —Andrew Gamble, University of Cambridge"Ray Kiely’s wonderfully wide-ranging study … has rethought an idea and opened up a discussion that should now move from the margins to the centre stage." —Michael Cox, London School of Economics and Political Science
