Item description for Confronting Capitalism: Dispatches from a Global Movement by Eddie Yuen, Daniel Burton-Rose, George Katsiaficas, Klaus Segbers, Ted Pushinsky, Frances E. Wall & David Mungello...

This updated and expanded edition of The Battle of Seattle invites readers to join the intensive debates within the antiglobalization movement. The uprising against the World Trade Organization in 1999 was the most visible and dramatic protest in the United States since the Vietnam War. Subsequent protests in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Prague, Cancun, and other cities have shown that there is a growing movement opposing globalization. The book roots these events globally in an anticapitalist history that includes the resistance to the IMF, the mass organizing campaigns of the nuclear-freeze movement in the 1980s, and the innovative tactics of environmentalists in the United States. Confronting Capitalism tackles the questions raised by the antiglobalization movement: How can a movement that claims to be global root itself in local communities? What happens to nonviolent tactics in an environment of increasingly ruthless policing? Can NGOs be agents of social transformation? Photographs, illustrations, and contributions from Naomi Klein, Stanley Aronowitz, Noam Chomsky, Barbara Ehrenreich, and others are featured.
