Summary

The crisis of Northern capitalism and failure of hegemonic global governance have created a facilitative environment for post-hegemonic initiatives, and an increase in the occurrence and effectiveness of South-South cooperation. Major Southern countries – especially the BRICS – have taken the lead, while Latin America and Eurasia’s experience demonstrates that post-hegemonic regionalism constitutes a struggle centered on culture, economy, financial cooperation, and regional defense.

This book focuses on newly emerging forms of international cooperation and power-balancing mechanisms originating from South-South cooperation and "post-hegemonic" regional governance mechanisms to provide a rigorous analysis of the historical, political-economic and strategic context in which the changes have occurred. Providing a global and comprehensive perspective that combines political economy with geopolitics the author develops a new approach to the multipolarization of global politics based on ‘global hegemony’.

Highly recommended for scholars, students and activists involved in global political economy, regionalism studies and international development this book will be of interest to anyone seeking to develop their understanding of the multipolarization of global politics and South-South cooperation.
