The Globalization Decade: A Critical Reader
The pathbreaking analyses collected in this book, written as the globalization decade unfolded, grasp the radical nature of globalization in a way still unmatched by orthodox commentaries: not as a mere series of ‘reforms’ but as a worldwide transformation of all aspects of life to conform with capitalism’s ruthless logic.
The Globalization Decadechallenges conventional wisdom, both right and left. It is not a blueprint for an alternative world order but it shows the principles on which viable alternatives must be based: the restoration of democratic control over investment, and a radically new respect for the limits of the environment.
