Ideologies of Globalization: Contending Visions of a New World Order
This book examines the key debates about globalization and provides a detailed and incisive analysis of the varied and often contradictory opposition to globalization within the United States. Subjects covered include: the historical context of the development of globalization in the U.S. in the post-war period; opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the General Agreement on Trade & Tariffs (GATT) & the World Trade Organisation (WTO); the nationalist response to globalization from 'militia' groups and others on the extreme right; the populist backlash against globalization; recent moves by advocates of the free market to present "globalization with a human face."
