The essay discusses the supremacy of the United States of America in the international system: is it definable as hegemony? Going back to the classical meaning of the term, we can argue that American primacy hasn’t the features of a world hegemonic regime. Hegemony requires consent, but the terrorist attack on September 11th shows that United States are far from obtaining it in the international arena. Furthermore, in spite of recent international literature, American rule in world affairs can’t be compared to the Roman Empire: no doubt American policy isn’t universalistic at all.
