In a completely original analysis, 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 analyses the marquee instruments of American hegemony - covert intervention, client elites, psychological torture, and worldwide surveillance.
