Description

Alfred McCoy
In the Shadows of the American Century: The Rise and Decline of U.S. Global Power

amits

Historian Alfred W. McCoy explores America's rise as a world power—from the 1890s through the Cold War—and its bid to extend its hegemony deep into the twenty-first century through a fusion of cyberwar, space warfare, trade pacts, and military alliances. McCoy then analyzes the instruments of US hegemony—covert intervention, client elites, psychological torture, and worldwide surveillance.

Alfred McCoy holds the Harrington Chair in History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Among his many influential books is The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade. Prof. McCoy also wrote a 2006 book on torture by the US.
