By Lorenzo Fusaro. From Haymarket Books:

Tracing the vicissitudes of US hegemony from the interwar period to the present, Fusaro provides a novel Gramscian way to interpret past and present developments within the world economy.

Crises and Hegemonic Transitions reworks the concept of hegemony at the international level and analyses its relation to world market crises. Returning to the critical edition of Gramsci’s Quaderni and maintaining that the author’s work is permeated by Marx’s Capital and the law of value, Fusaro argues that imperialist states strive to construct hegemonic relations through the use of domination, leadership, coercion, and consensus, in order to secure capital accumulation, and that economic crises have only the potential to provoke crises of hegemony. Tracing the vicissitudes of US hegemony from the interwar period to the present and assessing the Great Depression’s and the Great Recession’s impact, Fusaro provides a novel way to interpret past and present developments within the world economy.
