Columbia University Press

The chapter begins by challenging the prevailing view on hegemony in the field of international relations. Whereas most scholars have long approached hegemony in terms of an international phenomenon resulting from the preponderant power of one actor, this theory chapter proposes that one should also consider domestic politics, particularly the domestic political legitimation needs of other less powerful actors.

Keywords:   Hegemonic authority, domestic politics, legitimation strategies, power struggles, internal crises, symbolic power
