Overview

In this clear and compelling narrative, Dimitris Stevis and Terry Boswell explore the past accomplishments and the formidable challenges facing global union politics. Outlining the contradictions of globalization and global governance, they place this key social movement in a political economy framework as they argue that social movements can be fruitfully compared based on their emphases on egalitarianism and internationalism. Applying these concepts across time, the authors consider whether global union politics has become more active and more influential or has failed to rise to the challenge of global capitalism. All readers interested in global organizations, governance, and social movements will find this deeply informed work an essential resource.
