Introduction : concepts for a geography of power -- Economic power -- Ideological power -- Political power -- Sub-hegemony : South Africa -- Counter-hegemony -- The three neos.
This text examines how contemporary global economic policies are made - by which institutions, under what ideologies, & how they are enforced.
