Power, Profit, and Protest: Australian Social Movements and Globalisation

Synopsis

Mapping the development of social movements in the Australian political landscape--from feminism and Aboriginal rights to the new antiglobalization movement--this book argues that corporate globalization has threatened or transformed established social movements and sparked powerful new forms of social protest. The emergence of anticapitalist and anticorporate activism is analyzed, and the profound challenges posed by this newest of social movements to the state, to society in general, and to the labor movement in particular are outlined.
