Title:The Endgame of Globalization: Engame Geographies
Author(s):Smith, Neil
Global Capitalism
International relations
Abstract:It is a central argument of this book that American imperial ambition is not new either with the neo-cons or the post-cold war world but that it has been episodic throughout US history. The first truly global (as opposed to international) assertion of US power came in the years following 1898 and leading up to World War I. A second episode came with the culmination of World War II. In this context, the Clinton and Bush administrations represent two sides of a single historical moment, namely the zenith of a third moment of US global ambition. In victory and defeat, both were committed to a successful endgame of globalization.
