A History of World Order and Resistance: The Making and Unmaking of Global Subjects - Rethinking Globalizations (Paperback)Andre C. Drainville (author)
- We can order this
This book combines theory with history toÃ£ look into a dozen episodes of struggleÃ£ over the concrete andÃ£ situated terms of world ordering, andÃ£ it finds reasons to think that the contemporary 'movement of movements' against neo-liberal globalization has deeper roots and a broader history than is usually recognized.Ã£ Informed by case studies from the US, the UK, France, South Africa, Algeria, the Philippines and Jamaica, A History of World Order and Resistance examines howÃ£ men and womenÃ£ are sometimes subjectified by world ordering, and how theyÃ£ sometimesÃ£ make themselves true subjects of their own global history.
The author, an expert on resistance toÃ£ world ordering,Ã£ situates the contemporary 'movement of movements' againstÃ£ neo-liberal globalization in a broader historical framework to argue that resistance to world ordering has not only developed its very own, unalienating,Ã£ mode of relation to the world economy, but alsoÃ£ sustained it over two hundred years, without political mediation or representations.Ã£ Ã£ Herein lies theÃ£ heart of the on-going world revolution against capital. Ã£ The book concludes with a radical polemic againstÃ£ the political organization of the multitude.
A History of World Order and Resistance will be of interest to students and scholars of political theory, international political economy and globalization.
