Description - Critical Globalization Studies by Richard P. Appelbaum
Critical Globalization Studies is a comprehensive critical volume on globalization that balances both theory and practice. It includes pieces on contemporary globalization theory as well as accounts of globalization on the ground. The theory put forth is resolutely critical of globalization as it currently exists - i.e. US-dominated, corporate-led, and neoliberal - and advocates a more egalitarian vision that prioritizes social justice. The grounded pieces focus mainly on social justice movements fighting the devastating effects of currently dominant forms of globalization. Along with developing new theoretical perspectives, the editors strive to make the book relevant to activists in the global justice movement.
