Territoriality and the Westernization Imperative
Territoriality and the Westernization Imperative内容简介
Coexistence in an atmosphere of mutual respect in a pluralist world order has become an even greater challenge in the practice of international relations since the murderous acts committed by al-Qaeda on September 11, 2001 (9/11) that demanded justice. This book looks beyond today's popular narratives. Dr. Chang explores the extent to which the tragedy of 9/11 has been exploited by the neoconservative-controlled U.S. administration as opportunity to launch its grand strategy for creating an American-centric order, necessary for the continuation of U.S. hegemony in the twenty-first century. Specific controversial concerns are extensively examined within the historical and theoretical context of territoriality and power. The state of the American economy; the Arab-Israel conflict; and the invasion of Iraq and its aftermath are treated as interrelated issues and examined in terms of the Westernization imperative inherent in the grand strategy that principally requires the containment of an emerging China.
