MEDIA REVIEWS

'A guidebook helps those who search. In a time of infinite war, when we confront the infinite stupidity, lies and arrogance of power, we search for those values and practices that keep us true to our dreams and aspirations for another world. This book guides us into that search, and it does it beautifully. The diverse and colourful global revolt it portrays is where we find hope and creativity. The creations of the communities in struggle are also revolts that reclaim dignity.'
Massimo De Angelis, editor of The Commoner

'This book is simultaneously exciting, heartfelt, and eloquent. It is the most coherent elaboration so far of globalization-praxis, and its arguments should be taken on board by activists and intellectuals who are serious about social change.'
Patrick Bond, University of KwaZulu-Natal Centre for Civil Society

'Illuminating and informative both for those already intimately aware of the scope and nature of the movement and for those not yet involved. A demystifying roadmap of the ideas and events which have shaped the movement.'
Robert Ross, civil rights attorney and environmental activist

'Offers a concise history of the worldwide revolt against globalization. Emphasising the centrality of Global South movements in defining the agenda, the book helps us to understand how we can become part of the web of vision and resistance which has already been woven by peoples' movements around the world.'
