Inhalt
Protests in Seattle, Quebec City, and Genoa brought the anticorporate globalization movement to wide public awareness. But what are the roots of this movement, and where is it going? Another World is Possible traces the movement's progress since 1994, and makes the case for the continued development of its anti-capitalist analysis and activism. In this major new work, David McNally considers contemporary social activists, and the political and economic orders they resist, in the context of historical capitalism in all its racial, gendered, and imperialist dimensions. Drawing on the experiences of radical movements of workers, peasants and indigenous peoples in Mexico, Korea, Bolivia, Indonesia and Brazil, among other countries, he sketches out an alternative, deeply radical politics based on diversity, internationalism, and moving beyond commodifi cation and the market. "Another World is Possible" is widely read by activists and scholars. It considers contemporary social movements, and the political and economic orders they resist, in the context of historical capitalism in all its racial, gendered, and imperialist dimensions. This new revised edition incorporates McNally's analysis of the invasion of Iraq, the fall-out for anti-globalization struggles in the North, and his new research into the inspiring resistance to global capitalism emerging in the South. McNally outlines an alternative, deeply radical politics based on diversity, internationalism, and moving beyond commodifi cation and the market. (Verlagsinformation) / Stimmen zum Buch: "True to its title, David McNally's book teaches us to read the politics of our times with an optimism of both the intellect and the heart. It offers reasons for hope based on worldwide struggles for social justice and shows us the many links of resistance that join us across the world. Another World is Possible builds bridges from where we stand now to another, better world." - (Himani Bannerji Author of Dark Side of the Nation and Returning the Gaze) / "The new edition of Another World is Possible: Globalization and Anti-Capitalism is an invaluable resource for activists, students and researchers. This book provides an engaging, brilliantly written and fully up-to-date survey of everything that is wrong about the current phase of capitalist 'globalization', and why anti-capitalism is the answer. This wide-ranging book is a must-read for anyone who is concerned about the destructive impact of contemporary capitalism, and looking for alternatives to it." - Alfredo Saad-Filho Senior Lecturer in Political Economy of Development, SOAS, University of London) / (Rezensionen zum Buch sowie einen deutschsprachigen Artikel des Autors auf www.jungle-world.com s. unten angeführte Links)
