about

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.
Jackie Smith is associate professor of sociology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Hank Johnston is editor of Mobilization: An International Journal and lecturer in sociology at San Diego State University.
