The paradox of "globalization" is that it both weakens and activates social forces of resistance. This book establishes the centrality of "the political" in our understanding of globalization and explores the "strategies of resistance" on a local, national, regional and global scale. Its wide ranging set of contributors engage in re-thinking what practices now constitute viable political strategies in the world economy, focusing on popular responses to neoliberal globalization and the rearticulation of society, politics and the state.
