Overview

The informal motto of the "anti-globalization" social movements has been "Another World is Possible." Possible only if done right, argues George (associate director of Amsterdam's Transnational Institute and vice-president of ATTAC-France), addressing the neophyte as much as the seasoned activist. She lays out the basic case of those who fight against the neoliberal "Washington Consensus," describing it depredations on the environment, identifies the important actors, and sketches a reformist path towards change. She then turns her attention to strategic and tactical matters, discussing organizing, education, nonviolence, and the necessity of jettisoning "cherished illusions."
