"With insight and verve, Carla Norrlof makes a strong case for the durability of US hegemony in the world economy. Incorporating security considerations as well as trade and monetary relations, her analysis represents International Political Economy at its best."
Benjamin J. Cohen, University of California at Santa Barbara.
"This is the most interesting work on hegemony and world politics for the past 10 years. Especially impressive is Chapter 6's argument that US military power has translated into the capacity of the United States to be able to command a 'security premium,' that is, an ability to attract investment from abroad that it would not enjoy were it not so powerful militarily. This is likely to stir theoretical controversy and prompt important new research. A well written, sophisticated yet accessible book."

Carla Norrlof challenges the idea that other states benefit more from U.S. hegemony than the United States itself. Analysing America's advantages in trade, money, and security, Norrlof shows how America benefits from being the world's dominant power, arguing it is likely to maintain its hegemonic position for the foreseeable future.
