'Thomas Olesen has done what many scholars and advocates entranced with the new transnational contention only talk about: he has mapped the international solidarity network formed around the Zapatista rebellion and pinpointed the crucial role of transnational actors and the Internet in it. The book is at once scholarly and passionate, well-informed and speculative, and will make a definitive contribution to our understanding of "global" social movements.'
Sidney Tarrow, author of Power in Movement
'International Zapatismo is the first book-length case study of an international solidarity movement in the era of globalization. Olesen explains this new movement and, by implication, the global solidarity and justice movement more generally.'
Peter Waterman, author of Globalization, Social Movements and the New Internationalisms
'Olesen‘s book offers a powerful case study examined through powerful theoretical lenses. Its empirical focus is the events during and after the 1994 Zapatista uprising in Mexico. Its rich theoretical framework combines ideas drawn from literatures on social movements, information technologies, globalization, and framing theory. As such, it will surely become a landmark in all these fields.'
James N. Rosenau, The George Washington University
