The U.S. Hegemonic Model during the Cold War

Adrian Eugen PREDA

 Abstract: This paper examines the question about the nature of the US hegemony in the international system during the Cold War. In this paper I will analyze the US hegemonic model during the Cold War, by arguing that the United States promoted and exerted an inclusive hegemony. As theoretical basis for hegemony I will use a mix of theories on hegemony (Robert Gilpin and Antonio Gramsci) and new institutional economics (Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson).
