Summary

When tens of thousands of protestors brought the World Trade Organization in Seattle to a halt in November 1999, it marked the "coming out party" for a new global movement. Trade unionists, environmentalists, students, women's rights groups, and human rights advocates demanded an alternative to "globalization from above." As Newsweek commented, "There are now two visions of globalization on offer, one led by commerce, one by social activism."

How can this emerging movement realize its vision? In Globalization from Below: The Power of Solidarity, Brecher, Costello, and Smith draw on the history of past movements and their own experience as activists to propose strategies for building this powerful coalition into a successful movement for global democratization.
