Global Backlash: Citizen Initiatives for a Just World Economyby Robin Broad (Editor), Dean Acheson (Contribution by), Kofi Annan (Contribution by), Bama Athreya (Contribution by), Maude Barlow (Contribution by)
Global Backlash is the first book to move beyond the monolithic portrayal of the globalization protests that have escalated since Seattle and are not likely to abate soon. With trenchant analysis and dozens of primary documents from a variety of popular and uncommon sources, Robin Broad explores proposals and initiatives coming from the backlash to answer the question, 'But what do they want?' A range of sophisticated propositions and a vibrant debate among segments of the backlash emerge. Highly readable and analytically powerful, this book is vital to understanding the most potent protest movement of our times.
