Globalization and Resistance brings together cutting-edge theory and research about how global economics and politics alter the way ordinary people engage in contentious political action. The cases range from nineteenth-century Irish immigrant networks, to protests against World Bank projects in the Amazon, to contemporary transnational organizing for the environment, to the 'battle of Seattle.' The volume illuminates the reciprocal effects between globalization processes and social movements.

Editorial Reviews

Political Studies Review
The eclectic mix of topics and approaches proves both interesting and stimulating. One of the more interesting attempts to develop social movement studies so as to recognize adequately the breadth, depth and significance of transnational activism.
Sidney Tarrow
Shifting from the broad canvas of globalization to the finer fabric of the mechanisms of activism is a step that will take us far in understanding the dynamics of transnational contention. That step has been mightily advanced by the contributions to this book.
