Empire in Decline?

Launch of the Journal of Critical Globalisation Studies Issue 4: ‘Empire in Decline?’

A talk by Francis Shor

The launch of the forthcoming special issue of the JCGS on ‘Crisis’ will be introduced by past contributor, Francis Shor, giving a presentation of his new book, Dying Empire: U.S Imperialism and Global Resistance, followed by a drinks reception, at:

Royal Holloway College, Bedford Square, 2 Gower Street, WC1E 6DP, London

April 27th from 16.00 to 19.00

Open to all; just turn up!

Is theUnited States an empire in decline, as argued by world systems theorists? Indeed, can theUS even be categorized as an “empire”? This presentation, based on material from Shor’s latest book “Dying Empire,” will highlight the economic, geopolitical, and ideological/cultural dimensions of the rise and fall of the US Empire.

Although focused on the long trajectory of US empire, special attention will be given to the post WWII construction of American global hegemony and the more recent flashpoints indicative of the decline of that hegemony.
