Globalization and Resistance: Transnational Dimensions of Social Movements
- Publish Date: 2002-08-15
- Binding: Paperback
Globalization and Resistance brings together cutting-edge theory and research about how global economics and politics alter the way ordinary people engage in contentious political action. The cases range from nineteenth-century Irish immigrant networks, to protests against World Bank projects in the Amazon, to contemporary transnational organizing for the environment, to the 'battle of Seattle.' The volume illuminates the reciprocal effects between globalization processes and social movements.
