"The Struggle for the World is excellent. Lindholm and Zúquete deal with an issue of the age from a novel angle and with interesting cases. For all their similarities, the movements in question are different, and this difference is part of the pleasure and interest of the book. I have no doubt this superbly written work will garner considerable attention." —John A. Hall, McGill University
"The Struggle for the World offers a creative look at the many social and political movements that share apocalyptic understandings of globalizing capitalism. In their analysis of the rhetoric and actions of the movements themselves, Lindholm and Zuquete creatively and subtly demonstrate the complexity of these movements own ideas and provide a keen insight into the alternative narratives, rituals, and broad cultural goals the movements have proposed as solutions to the perceived evils of contemporary globalization." —Marc Howard Ross, Bryn Mawr College
"A powerful, challenging book exploring global movements against political oppression and cultural destruction, it offers a wide-ranging critical analysis of the McDonaldization of everything. Against these alter-globalization movements and their charismatic leaders, Lindholm and Zuquete remain skeptical towards any immediate eruption of a post-global, post-modern Paradise." — Bryan S. Turner, Wellesley College
"From alter-globalization to the New Right to Jihadism, this timely book demonstrates that world-transforming movements, thought to have disappeared after the decline of the Left in the late 70s, have reappeared in different forms. As the first of its kind to assemble major contemporary 'global' movements in one place, this book will definitely prove crucial reading for anyone interested in the dynamics of social movements today." —Jonathan Friedman, University of California, San Diego --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
