Posthegemony: Political Theory and Latin America

Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2010.

A challenging new work of cultural and political theory rethinks the concept of hegemony

Posthegemony is an investigation into the origins, limits, and possibilities for contemporary politics and political analysis. Challenging dominant strains in social theory, Jon Beasley-Murray contends that cultural studies simply replicates the populism that conditions it, and that civil society theory merely nourishes the neoliberalism that it sets out to oppose.
