'Marjorie Mayo has added another highly important contribution to her wide-ranging canon on the struggles for ordinary people's and communities' empowerment. This powerful book provides an analysis of how they can respond to globalisation - over key issues such as debt, gender rights, education and poverty - and examples of how they have done so.'
Gary Craig, professor of social justice, Hull University, and president of the International Association for Community Development
'In clear and accessible language, Mayo brilliantly outlines key theoretical debates about globalization, democracy and social movements, linking them to concrete case studies of citizen action. In so doing, she poses and explores critical contemporary issues of how to build sustainable challenges to global power through grassroots action. This book is a must for all of those seeking to understand how to build progressive movements for human rights and social justice in the twenty-first century.'
John Gaventa, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex and co-editor Global Citizen Action
