Sanctions Beyond Borders tests the assumption that economic globalization and the decline of U.S. hegemony give overseas corporate behavior a free reign in defying U.S. imposed sanctions abroad. It examines the use of sanctions from the early Cold War era through the sanctions decade of the 1990s, including the Helms-Burton Law and the Iran-Libya Sanctions Act.
