ABSTRACT
Neoconservatism, also referred to as neocon, is a modern political ideology, originated in the United States of America. This political ideology acquired a relevant political influence starting from Reagan's presidency, while contemporary neoconservatism is affirmed as a dominant pattern with the arrival of the administration of G. W. Bush in 2001. The neoconservative ideologists and unipolarists close to them occupied almost all important positions in the field of foreign policy, defense and security of his administration. Contemporary neoconservatism has been defined by a group of neoconservative ideologists during the 1990s. Their ideas regarding global domination of the United States through a "benevolent hegemony", a need of strengthening American military capacities and a necessity of preventive actions against threats even before they become seriously dangerous are basically geopolitical ideas. They were translated into a new global geostrategy of the USA. By following the genesis of contemporary geopolitical ideas and identifying the geopolitical and geostrategic goals in those ideas, the author has tried to prove the thesis that contemporary neoconservative political ideology contains geopolitical and geostrategic ideas, which define its goals as geopolitical and geostrategic.
