Description - The Endgame of Globalization by Neil Smith

The Endgame of Globalization argues that US actions since 9/11 represent the final stage in the US's century-long effort to complete the project of making US-led globalization a concrete reality across the world. Smith structures the book through three historical moments: 1) the attempted creation of a global Monroe doctrine between 1898 and 1919; 2) the Roosevelt administration's creation of the Bretton Woods institutions - the World Bank, the IMF, and the U.N.; and 3) globalization - the US-led effort to establish a new global regime based on free trade, deregulation, and privatization. In conclusion, the book links what has been going on in the Middle East to this larger project. Consequently, the anti-globalization forces which received so much attention prior to 9/11 need to be seen in a new light, as their perspective is a fundamental component of the opposition to America's globalist endgame.
