Overview

People around the world are confused and concerned. Is it a sign of strength or of weakness that the US has suddenly shifted from a politics of consensus to one of coercion on the world stage? Closely argued but clearly written, David Harvey, a leading social theorist of his generation, builds a conceptual framework to expose the underlying forces at work behind these momentous shifts in US policies and politics. The compulsions behind the projection of US power on the world as a 'new imperialism' are here, for the first time, laid bare for all to see.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"... he makes an important theoretical contribution to understanding contemporary empires vicissitudes." --The Times Higher


"The New Imperialism, then, merits the widest possible public. David Harvey is a social theorist known for a cool, analytical style born of interdisciplinary inquiry, coupled with a keen feeling for political significance. This book showcases his talent."--Boston Phoenix

'David Harvey has written a profound, and profoundly disturbing, book. For thirty years his writings have taken aim at the complacent conviction that what exists works. Harvey is a scholarly radical; his writing is free of journalistic clich├ęs, full of facts and carefully thought-through ideas. This book is beautifully crafted, its prose accessible, its narrative one of mounting intensity and urgency. The New Imperialism mounts a stunning indictment of our present institutions of power, while offering hopeful insights about how these institutions could be changed."--Richard Sennett, Professor of Sociology, London School of Economics
