Globalization is transforming the world in ways that we are only just beginning to understand. It is often assumed that social movements, such as that of labor, will simply be overwhelmed by these changes. This book carries out a wide-ranging examination of theoretical and practical dimensions of globalization and the responses of the labor movement to the challenges it poses. Contributors explore the trend towards the globalization of labor, the influences of globalization at the sub-global spatial level, and the effects of globalization in a social dimension. In different ways, from different angles and taking up different positions, all the chapters in Labour and Globalisation can be seen as contributions to the development of a labor-based challenge to the ravages of globalization. They are, on the whole, neither optimistic nor pessimistic but seek out possibilities as well as establishing limits to labor transnationalism in the era of globalization.
