A new movement of anti-globalists has arisen to oppose corporate domination over the planet's poor and disfranchised. Naming the Enemy is the first systematic documentation of this international resistance to transnational corporations and globalization which began with the street protests in Seattle, Washington, London and Prague.
A wide and heterogeneous range of social movements now oppose the very fundamentals of market capitalism. Their challenge is beginning, Amory Starr shows, to amount to a sweeping critique of its purposes and practice. This phenomenon will only grow in importance as the globalized economy, dominated by giant corporations and institutions like the World Bank and IMF, fails to deliver on jobs, social justice, Third World development and the environment. The course of this new kind of political struggle will have huge implications for human welfare and civil liberties.
This unique and important book is relevant to activists as well as students and scholars of globalization, new social movements and political economy.
