Summary "Rejecting economic determinism, this book sets out to establish the centrality of 'the political' in our understandings of globalization. In a wide-ranging set of essays, distinguished contributors explore the new 'strategies of resistance' emerging on local, national, regional and global scales. The authors engage in critical rethinking of what practices now constitute viable political strategies in the world economy, focusing on popular responses to neoliberal globalization and the rearticulation of society, politics and the state."--BOOK JACKET
