In The Integrated Circus Patricia Marchak examines the relationship between the emergence of the New Right and the development of a global marketplace after the Second World War. Focusing on the political organization and neo-conservative ideologies of the New Right, Marchak scrutinizes the connections between technological change, the debt and environmental crises, mounting Islamic fundamentalism, the end of the Cold War, and the rise of the Japanese and other Asian-Pacific economies and the decline in American hegemony.
