This book provides the first systematic examination of the relationship of hegemony and power. Nine essays delve into the diverse analytical aspects of the two concepts, and an introduction and conclusion by the editors, respectively, forge a synthesis of their theoretical coherence. Hegemony has long existed as a term in political science, international relations, and social theory, but its meaning varies across these fields. While each has developed its own 'local' language games for treating the idea, they all conceptualize hegemony as a form of power. Building on the recent rigorous exposition of power, this book subjects hegemony to a clarifying debate. In doing so, it advances the power debate. Components of the literature assume a relationship between power and hegemony, but no previous work has performed a concentrated and consistent analytical examination of them until now.

Based upon this approach, I conclude that before the Roman conquest in the second century B.C., the consumption of imported Mediterranean goods such as fine ware and wine was relatively uniform within local communities, with few social disparities. After the Roman conquest, however, certain elements of Roman material culture, such as architecture and domestic adornments, feasting assemblages, and public monuments, became the exclusive domain of a small number of elites, who used these objects to create social distinctions and integrate themselves with the elite of the Roman world. At the same time, however, the widespread consumption of other, more quotidian, elements of Roman material culture by large segments of the population reaffirmed the cultural frame of reference built by elites around Roman cultural symbols, as well as the hierarchy that this hegemony promoted.

This book reflects on 'the political' in queer theory and politics by revisiting two of its key categories: hegemony and heteronormativity. It explores the specific insights offered by these categories and the ways in which they augment the analysis of power and domination from a queer perspective, whilst also examining the possibilities for political analysis and strategy-building provided by theories of hegemony and heteronormativity. Moreover, in addressing these issues the book strives to rethink the understanding of the term "queer", so as to avoid narrowing queer politics to a critique of normative heterosexuality and the rigid gender binary. By looking at the interplay between hegemony and heteronormativity, this ground-breaking volume presents new possibilities of reconceptualizing 'the political' from a queer perspective. Investigating the effects of queer politics not only on subjectivities and intimate personal relations, but also on institutions, socio-cultural processes and global politics, this book will be of interest to those working in the fields of critical theory, gender and sexuality, queer theory, postcolonial studies, and feminist political theory.

This book provides a critical sociology of religion in Latin America. Its purpose is to discuss the notion of religion as part of social, cultural, and political processes in capitalist societies, drawing on the classics of sociological thought (Marx, Durkheim, Weber, and Gramsci). Thus, churches are analyzed as organized institutions of religious mediation intimately linked to the production of social, cultural, and political hegemony in Latin America. The Catholic Church, the dominant church in the region, is analyzed in terms of its different faces, changes, and transformations from conquest and colonization through the changing winds of Vatican II to the revolutionary experiences of the popular church in the 1970s and 1980s. This work will be of interest to scholars of Latin American studies, politics, religion, culture, and sociology. It also speaks to theologians and philosophers working in Latin America.

Mobilities, encapsulating range of escalations in time and space by forming, transforming and retransforming social structures, cannot be understood in isolation. Cultural hegemony has been examined in post-colonial contexts while mobilities have been investigated conceptually, making empirical inquiries a noticeable absence. Though 'what mobilities are' have fairly been studied, why and how it occurs in tourism and cultural transformation need further examination. This theoretically motivated question led the present study of mobilities, tourism and cultural modifications. Emic and etic approaches are employed entrusting on qualitative methodology. Participants view that the dimensions of mobilities cause the modification of cultural values and spatial restructuring through mobility nodes influence on image reformation. Mobility nodes encourage movement of people resulting to drastic alterations in their mundane and consequently in value systems. Mobility drives revolving around capital, geopolitics and envisioned manipulations of cultural processes cause transition of cultural hegemony from former colonial powers to emerging Asian supremacies.

At the heart of this experiment in intellectual synthesis is an effort to clarify differences of method and understanding within a common political trajectory. Through a series of exchanges on the value of the Hegelian and Lacanian legacies, the dilemmas of multiculturalism, and the political challenges of a global economy, Butler, Laclau, and ÄiPek lend fresh significance to the key philosophical categories of the last century while setting a new standard for debate on the Left. --Book Jacket.

Constructing Global Enemies asks how and why specific interpretations of international terrorism and drug abuse have become hegemonic at the global level. The book analyses the international discourses on terrorism and drug prohibition and compares efforts to counter both, not only from a contemporary but also from a historical perspective. Utilising poststructuralist theory of the relationship between hegemony and identity, Herschinger argues that hegemony is much more than just the dominance of a single country in international life; rather it is the emergence of a hegemonic order that can best be understood as the production of a new collective identity. Offering an in-depth discussion of the methodology of discourse analysis, the book explores how such hegemonies emerge and persist in the field of security. This serves to explain the widespread disagreement regarding the fight against international terrorism as well as the successful suppression of counter-hegemonic projects in the field of international drug prohibition. Constructing Global Enemies will be of interest to students and scholars of international relations and security studies.

THESIS ON CYBERJAYA: HEGEMONY AND UTOPIANISM IN A SOUTHEAST ASIAN STATE by Azly Abdul Rahman a dissertation on "cybernating nations" submitted to Columbia University, New York (2004) This book, maintaine in its original dissertation format explores the concepts of “hegemony” and “utopianism” in the conceptualization of a “technopole” in a Southeast Asian state. I describe how “cybernetics” flow transculturally and is inscribed onto human consciousness as illustrated in the case of Malaysia’s grand-scale real estate project: “Silicon Valley-inspired” Multimedia Super Corridor (“The MSC”). I focus on the new economic nerve, Cyberjaya and the administrative capital, Putrajaya to investigate the dimensions of “hegemony” and “utopianism” My guiding questions were: what variant of hegemony is emerging? And what is the nature of the “utopianism” involved? Drawing inspiration from dialectical materialism, I designed a mixed-method approach in this study. The ensemble of methods used are Gruber’s Evolving System’s Approach to the study of an individual, semiotic analysis of visual images, and thematic analysis of speeches. This is a four-part dissertation. In Part I) I discuss the background of this study and review related sensitizing concepts (particularly “hegemony” and “utopianism”). In Part 2, I look at the history of Malaysia and the origin of the MSC. Using Gruber’s Case Study Approach, I then analyze the authoritarianism of Mahathir Mohamad, the author of the MSC project. In Part 3), using semiotics and thematic analyses. I describe how ideology is inscribed by looking at first, how “cybernetics” mutates with the recipient state, next, changes social relations of production, and finally produces and reproduces consciousness. I explore how foreign industrial and cultural complexes are installed and how they become ideological installations. In Part 4), I discuss my findings, develop propositions, outline a Theory of Hegemonic Formulations and suggest a set of tools to analyze how concepts permeate transculturally. I conclude my study with a reflection on Malaysia’s MSC after the retirement of Mahathir Mohamad. I propose that hegemony is a complex, kaleidoscopic, and multidimensional yet discernable and analyzable construct. Hegemony operates at the levels of language, politics, and systems of education, and helps define, institutionalize, and ritualize authoritarian leadership. Utopianism is one formulated by ideology, nationalism, and technological determinism. The interplay between authoritarianism and cybernetic systems sustain the culture of hegemony which then helps reproduce newer forms of Oriental Despotism.
