520    "In a completely original analysis, prize-winning 
       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 
       marquee instruments of US hegemony--covert intervention, 
       client elites, psychological torture, and worldwide 
       surveillance. Peeling back layers of secrecy, McCoy 
       exposes a military and economic battle for global 
       domination fought in the shadows, largely unknown to those
       outside the highest rungs of power."--Page 4 of cover.
