Nach einem Vierteljahrhundert politischer Theoriemüdigkeit haben Hardt und Negri mit ihrer brillanten, provokanten und heiß diskutierten Analyse des postmodernen Kapitalismus im Zeitalter der Globalisierung das Denken wieder in Bewegung gebracht. Der Hoffnung auf die politische Gestaltbarkeit einer neuen, gerechteren Weltordnung haben sie damit ein anspruchsvolles theoretisches Fundament gegeben. "Eine grandiose Gesellschaftsanalyse, die unser Unbehagen bündelt und ihm eine Richtung gibt, für die in der Geschichte der Philosophie das Wort vom 'guten Leben' steht." Die Zeit "Das Jahrzehnt linker Melancholie ist vorüber." Neue Zürcher Zeitung

The notion of empire has in recent years taken on a renewed importance in world politics. US foreign policy has in particular been associated with this concept by both critics and supporters of American global power. But what exactly is an empire? What distinguishes different forms of empire? Is this category still useful in a post-colonial world? These and other related questions are addressed in this historically informed conceptual introduction to the idea of empire. Alejandro Colás draws on interdisciplinary debates surrounding this disputed notion and offers a survey of different imperial experiences across time and place. Successive chapters consider the imperial organization of political space, the role of markets in sustaining imperial rule and the contradictory expressions of imperial culture. Colás argues that in each of these arenas we can establish differences among empires but also contrast imperial polities to other forms of political rule. In addition he suggests that the experiences and legacies of empire are key to an understanding of the world today, including forms of global governance and experiments in nation-building. Using wide-ranging examples, the book discusses some of the major theories of empire and imperialism in an accessible and engaging way. Above all, the text aims to bring the concept of empire alive to those concerned with contemporary world politics and society. It will be of great interest to those studying and teaching world history, international relations, comparative politics or global sociology.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Thema: Globalisierung, pol. Okonomie, Note: 1.7, Universitat Leipzig, Veranstaltung: Empire: Zur politischen Philosophie der 'einen' Welt, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Uberblick zur Debatte zum Buch "Empire. Die neue Weltordnung." von Michael Hardt und Antonio Negri., Abstract: Schafft die Globalisierung eine neue imperiale Weltordnung fernab von staatlicher Souveranitat? Eine Antwort auf diese Frage liefert das vielbeachtete, umfangreiche und komplexe Buch "Empire - Die neue Weltordnung" des Philosophen Antonio Negri und des Literaturwissenschaftlers Michael Hardt Dieses bescheidene Buchlein gibt einen Uberblick uber das etwas schwer verstandliche Empire-Konzept und die damit verbundene weltweite Empire-Debatte. Die Welt verandert sich. Nun ist dies keine neue oder uberraschende Erkenntnis, ist sie doch in stetem Wandel begriffen. Panta rhei - alles fliesst. Trotzdem glauben viele Menschen, ob Philosophen, Padagogen, Politiker, Arbeiter oder Stammtischbesucher, dass die Veranderungen heute grundlegender, weitreichender sowie die Gesellschaft und das Leben an sich starker beeinflussender sind, als in fruheren Zeiten. Das Stichwort zu diesen Veranderungen heisst Globalisierung. Es ist in aller Munde. Aber so gross wie die Welt selbst, so gross ist auch der Unterschied in der Kenntnis, der Meinung, dem Verstandnis oder dem Uberblick zu diesem Begriff, der verschiedenste Entwicklungen in einer Vielzahl von Bereichen, etwa Kultur, Gesellschaft, Wirtschaft oder Politik unter einem Dach zusammenfasst. Nahere Untersuchungen und Analysen tun not. Die Aufgabe scheint riesig. Michael Hardt und Antonio Negri nehmen sich ihrer an. In ihrem Buch Empire. Die neue Weltordnung," welches im englischsprachigen Original erstmals im Jahre 2000 erschien, versuchen sie, den vielfaltigen Wandel in unserer Zeit genauer unter die Lupe zu nehmen. Sie beziehen z.B. Geschichte, Philosophie, Wirtschafts

A great deal of the world's history is the history of empires. Indeed it could be said that all history is colonial history, if one takes a broad enough definition and goes far enough back. And although the great historic imperial systems, the land-based Russian one as well as the seaborne empires of western European powers, have collapsed during the past half century, their legacies shape almost every aspect of life on a global scale. Meanwhile there is fierce argument, and much speculation, about what has replaced the old territorial empires in world politics. Do the United States and its allies, transnational companies, financial and media institutions, or more broadly the forces of 'globalization', constitute a new imperial system? Stephen Howe interprets the meaning of the idea of 'empire' through the ages, disentangling the multiple uses and abuses of the labels 'empire', 'colonialism', etc., and examines the aftermath of imperialism on the contemporary world. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Imperialism as we knew it may be no more, but Empire is alive and well. It is, as Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri demonstrate in this bold work, the new political order of globalization. Their book shows how this emerging Empire is fundamentally different from the imperialism of European dominance and capitalist expansion in previous eras. Rather, today's Empire draws on elements of U.S. constitutionalism, with its tradition of hybrid identities and expanding frontiers. More than analysis, Empire is also an unabashedly utopian work of political philosophy.

The influence of the British Empire is everywhere, from the very existence of the United Kingdom to the ethnic composition of our cities. It affects everything, from Prime Ministers' decisions to send troops to war to the adventurers we admire. From the sports we think we're good at to the architecture of our buildings; the way we travel to the way we trade; the hopeless losers we will on, and the food we hunger for, the empire is never very far away. In this acute and witty analysis, Jeremy Paxman, bestselling author of The English goes to the very heart of empire. As he describes the selection process for colonial officers ('intended to weed out the cad, the feeble and the too clever') the importance of sport, the sweating domestic life of the colonial officer's wife ('the challenge with cooking meat was "to grasp the fleeting moment between toughness and putrefaction when the joint may possibly prove eatable"') and the crazed end for General Gordon of Khartoum, Paxman brings brilliantly to life the tragedy and comedy of Empire and reveals its profound and lasting effect on our nation and ourselves.

Ecology and Empire forged a historical partnership of great power -- and one which, particularly in the last 500 years, radically changed human and natural history across the globe. This book scrutinizes European expansion from the perspectives of the so-called colonized peripheries, the settler societies. It begins with Australia as a prism through which to consider the relations between settlers and their lands, but moves well beyond this to a range of lands of empire. It uses their distinctive ecologies and histories to shed new light on both the imperial and the settler environmental experience. Ecology and Empire also explores the way in which the science of ecology itself was an artifact of empire, drawing together the fields of imperial history and the history of science.
