If at some point we believed governments to operate exclusively through law and the threat and enforcement of concrete punishment, such as imprisonment, monetary penalties, etc., and called this and all that directly influenced it “politics,” we have now acknowledged the role of hegemony, which legitimizes law and supports the exercise of power.


What do "it" and "this" refer to?

    They both refer to "(the belief that) governments operate exclusively through law and the threat and enforcement of concrete punishment, such as imprisonment, monetary penalties".
    (You don't need to imitate the decorative typography on the cover of the book. "5 Lb. Book of GRE Practice Problems" is fine. 5 Lb. = 5 pounds = 2.27 kilograms.)
