It’s a post-Seattle world out there, and long-familiar geographical notions are reeling not only under the impact of capitalist globalization, but of myriad new linkages among globally-connected working people and communities. For cutting edge views of what all this means for the labor movement, read Place, Space and the New Labour Internationalisms. – Jeremy Brecher co-author of Globalisation from Below: The Power of Solidarity (Southend Press, Boston)
This is the first major interpretation of the future of labour internationalism in the wake of the Seattle protests. Waterman and Wills are to be congratulated for producing stimulating, original and forward-looking account. – Robin Cohen, Dean of Humanities, University of Cape Town
For those who wish to understand the potential strength and perils of labor in the neoliberal globalized world, Place, Space and the New Labour Internationalisms is essential reading. Waterman and Wills review and anticipate key battles that the labor movement will ineluctably face as corporate domination is challenged by the world-side movement for social justice. – Immanuel Ness, editor of WorkingUSA: The Journal of Labor and Society
From the Back Cover
Over the last 10 or 15 years there has been a revival of labor and trade union internationalism. This regeneration is attracting the attention of a new generation of committed thinkers who are deploying new types of scholarship. Labor internationalism is looked at not only in terms of political economy or industrial and international relations, but also in terms of social movement theory and in relationship to global civil society.
Notions of labor-community alliances, or the alliance of labor with radical-democratic social movements, are being projected onto the world stage. Radical social geographers have made a notable contribution to this debate by focusing on the scaled politics of labor organisation. This collection, co-edited by scholars from an older and younger generation, is a very original attempt to grapple with the challenges of globalization for labor. The collection includes contributions from academics and activists based in the North and South.
