International Zapatismo: The Construction of Solidarity in the Age of Globalization
Foyalty 96

International Zapatismo: The Construction of Solidarity in the Age of Globalization (Paperback)

£31.99
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

The Zapatista movement and its leader Subcomandante Marcos have attracted enormous political and scholarly attention ever since their uprising began in Chiapas, Mexico, in 1994. The movement not only struck a chord inside the country as Mexico was switching to neoliberal economics and attaching itself to the USA in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), but it rapidly evoked an extraordinary up-welling of political interest and solidarity in the Americas and worldwide.



Thomas Olesen explores this phenomenon in the context of globalization and the networking and communications potential of the Internet. What is the infrastructure of the global Zapatista solidarity network? What activities has it engaged in? What enabled it to develop? What are the longer term implications for new kinds of political action and international solidarity? And what can social theory tell us about the new global patterns of social interaction that are emerging?

Dr Thomas Olesen is Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Aarhus in Denmark. He has published a number of scholarly articles and chapters in edited volumes on globalization and social movements.
