Global Village or Global Pillage

Jeremy Brecher & Tim Costello, Cambridge: South End Press, 1998, 260 pp; paper $16 us; cloth $40 us.
A book that was ahead of its time has been brought up to date with a new preface that covers the latest developments in economic globalization including the defeat of "fast track," efforts to halt GATT and MAI, and the Asian economic crisis. In clear, accessible language, Brecher and Costello describe how people around the world have started challenging the New World Economy. From the Zapatistas to students and workers in France to the broad-based anti-NAFTA and anti-GATT coalitions, opposition to economic globalization is becoming a worldwide revolt. Global Village or Global Pillage is the best guide available to globalization and how to challenge it.
