9781783508297: The United States in Decline (Political Power and Social Theory)

Is the United States in decline? If so, what are the causes and dimensions of that decline and is it irreversible? Will American decline be accompanied by the rise of a new hegemon? To what extent are that rise and decline merely concurrent processes, determined by forces internal to each polity, or are American decline and the rise of its competitors both manifestations of a single global dynamic? The essays in this volume address those questions by examining the rise of finance in the U.S. and worldwide, the U.S. government's actual industrial strategy, China's failure so far to challenge the dollar's status as the world reserve currency, and the contradictions in American strategic doctrine as the Pentagon responds to failures in recent wars and to China's growing power. Two articles address the restructuring of politics in the U.S since the 1960s to explain governmental paralysis and the simultaneous disorganization and political success of corporate elites. This volume concludes with a comparison of U.S. decline and that of its once superpower rival, the Soviet Union. The contributors to this volume clarify our understanding of the current state and future trajectory of the United States and the effect of decline on its citizens and the world.

About the Author:

Richard Lachmann - University at Albany, State University of New York, USA

Review:

Contributed by sociologists from the US and United Arab Emirates, the seven essays in this volume examine whether the US is in decline, the causes and dimensions of that decline, and whether it is irreversible. They consider the status of the dollar as the world's reserve currency; the strategic doctrine of the US military since the end of the Cold War and China's growing geopolitical power; the changes in productivity, profit, and reinvestment in US industry from 1960 to 2007; the dynamism-decay dualism in the US economy that is linked to the divide between small and medium-sized enterprises and large corporations; how the US has experienced a decline of economic, political, and military power since the 1970s due partly to fragmentation of the American corporate elite; explanations for the slowdown of capital accumulation since 1980; and comparisons of US decline with the Soviet Union. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Annotation ©2014 Ringgold Inc. Portland, OR (protoview.com)
