Protest and Globalisation describes the formation of transnational strategies, particularly between “First” and “Third” worlds, by developing theoretical perspectives and examining practical issues encountered by movements that challenge corporate globalisation. In this way, the authors provide a deeper understanding of global protest movements and suggest models for these transnational movements.
