Hegemony in International Society

The Introduction explains the tension between resistance to a concentration of power and the normal role of the great powers. How is international order then to be managed in a sole great-power world? It then introduces the distinction between primacy and hegemony, with the latter's emphasis on legitimacy. It sets out the book's revisionist approach to the historical work on British and American hegemony, and explains how this will set up a new typology of forms of hegemony.

Keywords:   great power, hegemony, international order, legitimacy, primacy
