Summary

How do people in distinct regions of the world experience and respond to the pressures of change? This book makes the case for a clearer focus on how political settings are vital in understanding how global forces and local actions are changing the shape of world politics. The case studies indicate that, despite the liveliness of the local politics, popular organizations and national governments have a vital role to play as power is reconfigured on a global scale.
