Detailed description The transnational resistances to neo-liberal globalization are arguably the most inspiring political movements of our time. Resistance, Space and Political Identities: The Making of Counter-global Networks makes a distinctive contribution through examining globalised practices of resistance in both the past and present. Stressing the importance of geographies of connection and solidarity produced through these struggles David Featherstone argues that the resulting forms of political identity are integral to producing more pluralistic forms of globalization.
This provocative text first offers detailed research on networked forms of resistance in the 18th-century Atlantic world then develops a rigorous study of contemporary counter-global resistances. Insightful and thought-provoking, the authordevelops an innovative account of networked forms of resistance and political activity. This scholarly work illuminates transnational resistances and challenges prevailing assumptions about the histories and geographies of globalization.
