Duration: 12 hours 33 minutes

Summary:

In a completely original analysis, prizewinning historian Alfred W. McCoy explores America's rise as a world power-from the 1890s through the Cold War-and its bid to extend its hegemony deep into the twenty-first century through a fusion of cyberwar, space warfare, trade pacts, and military alliances. McCoy then analyzes the marquee instruments of US hegemony-covert intervention, client elites, psychological torture, and worldwide surveillance.Peeling back layers of secrecy, McCoy exposes a military and economic battle for global domination fought in the shadows, largely unknown to those outside the highest rungs of power. Can the United States extend the "American Century" or will China guide the globe for the next hundred years? McCoy devotes his final chapter to these questions, boldly laying out a series of scenarios that could lead to the end of Washington's world domination by 2030.

    I was introduced to Alfred McCoy through his exhaustively researched book The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia. This book, although a different subject matter, is still fascinating and very well written.
