9780520098701: America and the Misshaping of a New World Order (Global, Area, and International Archive)

The attempt by the George W. Bush administration to reshape world order, especially but not exclusively after September 11, 2001, increasingly appears to have resulted in a catastrophic “misshaping” of geopolitics in the wake of bungled campaigns in the Middle East and their many reverberations worldwide. Journalists and scholars are now trying to understand what happened, and this volume explores the role of culture and rhetoric in this process of geopolitical transformation. What difference do cultural concepts and values make to the cognitive and emotional weather of which, at various levels, international politics is both consequence and perceived corrective? The distinguished scholars in this multidisciplinary volume bring the tools of cultural analysis to the profound ongoing debate about how geopolitics is mapped and what determines its governance.

From the Inside Flap:

An important and telling critique of the myth and rhetoric of contemporary American expansionism and grand strategy. What is particularly original about these essays and unusually rare in studies of American foreign policy is their provocative combination of cultural and literary analysis with a subtle appreciation of the historical transformation of political forms and principles of world order.” Stephen Gill, author of Power and Resistance in the New World Order
