en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 12 Sep 2008
The transnational resistances to neo–liberal globalization are arguably the most inspiring political movements of our time. Resistance, Space and Political Identities: The Making of Counter–Global Networks makes a distinctive contribution through examining globalized practices of resistance in both the past and present. Stressing the importance of geographies of connection and solidarity produced through these struggles, David Featherstone argues that the resulting forms of political identity are integral to producing more just and pluralistic forms of globalization. This provocative text first offers detailed research on networked forms of resistance in the eighteenth–century Atlantic world, then develops a rigorous study of contemporary counter–global resistances. Insightful and thought–provoking, the author develops an innovative account of networked forms of resistance and political activity. This scholarly work illuminates transnational resistances and challenges prevailing assumptions about the histories and geographies of globalization.

Recenzii

"This persuasive, important, and well–written book rethinks resistance to dominant forms of globalization by emphasizing the translocal, often transnational, character of subaltern protest ... Featherstone has produced a book as dexterous, creative, and wide–ranging as the political network it seeks to describe." (Environment and Planning D: Society and Space, 2010) "This is a book that demands the attention and engagement of geographers, and others inside′ and outside′ academia, working on the intersections between social movements, political identities and the neoliberal state, ultimately offering a productive and uniquely positive approach to understanding and acting on the issues raised by such concerns." (Area, February 2011)
"Featherstone has produced a book as dexterous, creative, and wide–ranging as the political networks it seeks to describe." (Progress in Human Geography and Environment and Planning D, February 2011)
"This reviewer thinks we should be rather more generous – for, whatever the political objectives, we should be hugely grateful for Featherstone′s rescuing of the past relational geographies of resistance." (Progress in Human Progress in Human Progress, February 2011)
"In summary, RSPI is an incisive and stimulating work that significantly enhances our understanding of the construction and operation of counter–globalization networks. It extends and develops relational accounts of political identities and space in important ways, contributing to debates in political theory, human geography and social movement." (Social Movement Studies, 22 October 2010)
"Featherstone′s book contributes to our understanding of the formation of counter–global networks. He shows that transnational networks are not void of place. ... This book provides a good starting point for scholars who seek an understanding what happens to networks when subaltern relationships are spread across the globe." (Mobilization, March 2010)
"This optimistic take on the role of political contestation in world–making processes is a welcome change from the gloom and doom so typical of other geographical texts." (Environment and Planning A, 2009)
