By Caruso Giuseppe

OVERVIEW

transnational activism provides spaces to imagine and practice alternatives to neoliberal politics and its intoxicating cocktail of market deregulation, liberalisation, privatisation and state downsizing that punishes the world's weakest people and the environment. this book maps recurring dynamics, visions and practices in transnational activist networks, in particular the world social forum. it also reflects on the alterglobalisation movement from the anti-wto protests in seattle at the end of 1999, from which the world social forum took shape, to the latest wave of protests and revolutions such as the arab spring, occupy wall street, the indignados.
