Contesting Globalization by Andre C Drainville
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


What is the best way to effect radical progressive change? Has globalisation created a global city? Will global civil society overcome global market capitalism? This book is an innovative and original addition to the literature on globalization and examines the challenges faced by those wishing to develop progressive visions of transparent global governance and civil society. The author traces the history and development of the institutions of global governance (The World Bank, IMF, WTO etc) as well as the emergence of the anti-globalization movement. The author argues that we are at a unique moment where social forces have moved from national and international struggles to a global struggle and intervention in the world economy. A series of case studies examine the ways in which cities have become contested sites for global struggles from the London dockworkers strikes of the nineteenth century to the recent demonstrations against the international financial institutions in Genoa, Seattle and Washington.
