Abstract

In the Preface to his Imperialism and Global Political Economy (2009) Alex Callinicos wrote that ‘[i]mperialism, to many people’s surprise, survived the Cold War. More to the point, it has also survived the presidency of George W. Bush’ (Callinicos 2009, ix). In spite of this, after the first decade of the twenty-first century—during which there was a ‘great renaissance’ in the study of the subject—discussions on imperialism and US grand strategy have somehow not made it to academic headlines.
