An engaging, accessible handbook for both activists and the uninitiated, Anti-Capitalism provides everything you need to know about the issues, actors, and events in the burgeoning global justice movement, from Seattle to Genoa and New York. Covering the full range of controversies animating protest across the world, including trade, environmental destruction, pharmaceutical patents, genetically modified food, war, and immigration controls, Anti-Capitalism explains why these movements have sprung up in opposition to corporate globalization.
The book is organized as a handy field guide to widely-debated topics, regions of the world, and major players; features a short encyclopedia of activist organizations, multinational agencies, and corporations; and includes contributions from some of the leading chroniclers and analysts of the new movements, such as Naomi Klein, George Monbiot, and Susan George. Illustrated throughout, Anti-Capitalism also includes a chronology of demonstrations and extensive resource guides for further investigation.
The latest in The New Press¿s highly successful popular guides to economics and politics, Anti-Capitalism will appeal to anyone interested in the exciting new movements that have contributed to the greatest upsurge in social protest since the 1960s.
