Chapter Summary

Recent major trends in the developing world, from the spectacular growth of Islamic fundamentalism in Muslim countries to the rapid ascendancy of Confucian nationalism in East Asia, all demonstrate clearly that culture and cultural identities have become the driving force in global politics today. The theory and practice of hegemony arose as a state-centered solution to the prevalence of liberal deformation across the peripheral world. While contemporary cultural nationalists find in the developmental state a viable alternative to the Western model of liberal modernity, Marxist "state-builders" conceived of such a statist model precisely as what is the problem at issue. This chapter examines the theoretical implications of this Tradition by taking a closer look at the nature of the problematic of peripheral justice. At the core of this problem is an intrinsic linkage between liberalism and eurocentricism, or to put it more dramatically, the liberal logic of eurocentricism.

Keywords: Confucian Marxism; hegemony; liberalism
