The Zapatista movement and its leader Subcomandante Marcos have attracted enormous political and scholarly attention ever since their uprising began in Chiapas, Mexico, in 1994. The movement not only struck a chord inside the country as Mexico was switching to neoliberal economics and attaching itself to the USA in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), but it rapidly evoked an extraordinary up-welling of political interest and solidarity in the Americas and worldwide. Thomas Olesen explores this phenomenon in the context of globalization and the networking and communications potential of the Internet. What is the infrastructure of the global Zapatista solidarity network? What activities has it engaged in? What enabled it to develop? What are the longer term implications for new kinds of political action and international solidarity? And what can social theory tell us about the new global patterns of social interaction that are emerging?

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Thomas Olesen has done what many scholars and advocates entranced with the new transnational contention only talk about: he has mapped the international solidarity network formed around the Zapatista rebellion and pinpointed the crucial role of transnational actors and the Internet in it.' Sidney Tarrow, author of Power in Movement 'International Zapatismo is the first book-length case study of an international solidarity movement in the era of globalization.' Peter Waterman, author of Globalization, Social Movements and the New Internationalisms 'Olesen`s book offers a powerful case study examined through powerful theoretical lenses.' James N. Rosenau, The George Washington University 'A comprehensive, extremely analytical contribution to the literature on transnationalism and indigenous movements.' Alison Brysk, author of From Tribal Village to Global Village 'A superb account of the emergence and evolution of the transnational Zapatistas solidarity network.' Neil Harvey, New Mexico State University
