Edited by Eddie Yuen, Daniel Burton Rose and George Katsiaficas, Confronting Capitalism is a document of key debates within the anti-Globalization movement in the last few years. Despite the global shrinkage of political freedom in the post 9/11 era, globalization and anti-war movements have continued to evolve and expand, particularly in Europe, Latin America and Africa. In this volume, noted academics and grassroots organizers discuss a multitude of issues, including history and theory of the globalization movement, international networks and strategic dilemmas. Counter-institutions such as Independent Media Centers, People's Global Action, and World Social Forums are critically discussed. Confronting Capitalism is a revised and updated sequel to The Battle of Seattle: The New Challenge to Capitalist Globalization. Eddie Yuen is a Ph.D. candidate in the Sociology program at the University of California at Santa Cruz. He teaches at Brooklyn College and City University of New York.
