Author: Alfred W. McCoy

In a completely original analysis, prize-winning historian Alfred W. McCoy explores American rise as a world power--from the 1890s to the Cold War--and its bid to extend its hegemony deep into the twent-first century through a fusion of cyberwar, space warfare, trade pacts, and military alliances. McCoy the 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 dominaton fought in the shadows, largely unknown to those outside the highest rungs of power.
