Titel: The Global Resistance Reader
In Genoa, riot police sent in to quell demonstrations against a summit of the G8 end up killing a young Italian activist; the Zapatistas organize resistance to the exploitation of their communities in Mexico; in Seattle thousands take to the streets against the WTO and provide a huge shock to our global rulers; worldwide activism ensures that Third World debt becomes a key issue on the international stage; a former World Bank economist writes a best-selling critique of globalization; riots break out in the sleepy Swiss town of Geneva; an anti-corporate analysis by a Canadian journalist becomes a surprise worldwide bestseller called `No Logo’. Something is happening . `The Global Resistance Reader’ provides the first comprehensive account of the phenomenal rise of transnational social movements which have opposed the financial, economic and political hegemony of large international organisations such as the World Trade Organisation, World Bank and International Monetary Fund. The conceptual debates, substantive themes and case-studies have been selected to open up the idea of global resistance to interrogation and discussion by students and to provide a one-stop orientation for researchers, journalists and activists.
