There is an alternative: subsistence and worldwide resistance to corporate globalization

Veronika Bennholdt-Thomsen, Nicholas Faraclas, Claudia von Werlhof
Zed Books, 2001 - 240페이지
The contributors to this wide-ranging volume explore the defeatist myth that "there is no alternative" to corporate sponsored globalization. Theorists and activists from feminist, environmental, anti-imperialist, and anti-racist struggles from across five continents report on current community-based initiatives, demonstrating how individuals can defy the corporate globalization. The book specifically looks at the theory of subsistence, globalization as colonization, and concrete cases of resistance to globalization in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas, Australia, and the Pacific.
