Transforming Globalization

Challenges and Opportunities in the Post 9/11 Era

Edited by Bruce Podobnik and Thomas Reifer

This volume examines the emergence of the movement of resistance that has arisen to challenge neoliberal forms of globalization. The co-authors of this book describe how workers, environmentalists, human rights activists, and a wide variety of other groups have joined together to protest against institutions such as the WTO, the IMF, and the World Bank. Ongoing challenges facing the movement are objectively reviewed. Authors also highlight the continuing vitality of the movement in the post 9/11 period. By providing a collection of social scientific analyses, this volume significantly advances our understanding of what is probably the most important progressive movement of our time.
