Overview

Is it morally acceptable for one nation to police the world? Are there circumstances under which one nation has either the right or the obligation to dominate the others? This important and timely book is the first to examine these and other moral issues raised by America's status as the sole world superpower after the end of the Cold War.

"In this fascinating and well-written book, Brilmayer makes a nuanced argument about the conditions under which hegemony could be considered benign. American Hegemony will be rewarding reading for historians, international lawyers, and philosophers as well as political scientists."-Robert O. Keohane, Stanfield Professor of International Peace, Harvard University

"An original, creative, and convincing book. . . . Her thesis is . . . philosophically and politically attractive. If adopted and implemented by democratic leaders in their conduct of foreign policy, the world would be a better place. . . . With this book, Lea Brilmayer confirms the important place that her work already enjoys in the literature."-Fernando R. Tesón, Michigan Journal of International Law

"Brilmayer...displays real virtuosity as an analytical philosopher."-Foreign Affairs
