After the 'End of History'

Superpower Showdown.

After spending some time on the character of George Kennan, author of the Long Telegram, special guest Gopal provides an in depth look at the theoretical considerations of "Keystones," including the relationship between capitalism and the inter-state system. We discuss what bearing the assertion that capitalism is a "system of production without borders" has on Anderson's analysis of the Cold War. "Keystones" demonstrates Anderson's application of historical materialism to America’s emergence as a hemispheric hegemon in all of its theoretical sophistication.
