Summary "The early years of the twenty-first century have seen an upsurge of anti-capitalist campaigning, challenging the very basis of the New World Economic Order. Dramatic protests in Seattle or Genoa captured media headlines. But the headlines leave key questions unanswered, about the ultimate significance of the challenges posed by global social movements and the development of civil society, both South and North. Global Citizens sets out to explore the lessons from these experiences of social mobilization."--Jacket
