Are there existing alternatives to corporate globalization? What are the prospects for and commonalities between communities and movements such as Occupy, the World Social Forum and alternative economies?

Globalization Development and Social Justice advances the proposition that another globalization is not only possible, but already exists. It demonstrates that there are multiple pathways towards development with social justice and argues that enabling propositional agency, rather than oppositional agency such as resistance, is a more effective alternative to neoliberal globalization. El Khoury develops a theory of infraglobalization that emphasizes creative constitution, not just contestation, of global and local processes. The book features case studies and examples of diverse economic practice and innovative emergent political forms from the Global South and North. These case studies are located in the informal social economy and community development, as well as everyday practices, from prefigurative politics to community cooperatives and participatory planning.

This book makes an important contribution to debates about the prospects for, and practices of, a transformative grassroots globalization, and to critical debates about globalization and development strategies. It will be of interest to students and scholars of international relations, globalization, social movement studies, political and economic geography, sociology, anthropology and development studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`This pioneering and insightful book resources a new style of political imagination, practices of politics and a politics of hopefulness'

Richard Le Heron, Professor of Geography, University of Auckland, New Zealand.

'Ann El Khoury's work lays out a cogent philosophical platform for a more diverse, less deterministic, and scalar-sensitive means for analysing global economic and social change, and, in doing so, gives voice to those who have for too long been forced to the margins of analysis and debate'.

Neil Argent, Professor, School of Behavioural, Cognitive and Social Sciences, University of New England , Armidale, Australia
