Place, Space and the New Labour Internationalisms
Peter Waterman Jane Wills
Price: $ 34.95

Over the last 10 or 15 years there has been a revival of labour and trade union internationalism. This regeneration is attracting the attention of a new generation of committed thinkers who are deploying new types of scholarship. Labour internationalism is looked at not only in terms of political economy or industrial and international relations, but also in terms of social movement theory and in relationship to global civil society. Notions of labour-community alliances, or the alliance of labour with radical-democratic social movements, are being projected onto the world stage. Radical social geographers have made a notable contribution to this debate by focusing on the scaled politics of labour organisation. This collection, co-edited by scholars from an older and younger generation, is a very original attempt to grapple with the challenges of globalisation for labour. The collection includes contributions from academics and activists based in the North and South. Includes chapters from leading labour activists including Kjeld Jacobsen, International Secretary of the largest Brazilian trade union federation (the CUT) and Dan Gallin, Chair of the Global Labour Institute, GenevaFocuses on the interconnections between labour internationalism and the environment, women and race in North and South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and South Africa. Provides an up-to-date review of the academic literature on labour internationalism while exploring contemporary examples of workers' organisation.
