the nice demonstrations at Seattle and Genoa have proven that we're in a brand new period of protest. The neo-liberal financial rules pursued by means of the crowd of 7 top business nations and the overseas associations they regulate are frightening common resistance. transforming into numbers of individuals in all 5 continents are rejecting the values of the industry and the imaginative and prescient of a global made secure for the multinational organisations. yet what does the anti-globalization circulation stand for? Is it, as its most typical identify indicates, opposed to globalization itself? Is it hostile only to the neo-liberal Washington Consensus that grew to become dominant within the Nineteen Eighties and Nineteen Nineties, or is its genuine enemy the capitalist approach itself? the area Social discussion board at Porto Alegre has popularized the slogan 'Another international is Possible'. yet what's that global? Alex Callinicos seeks to respond to those questions in An Anti-Capitalist Manifesto. He analyses the improvement of the circulate, distinguishes among different political forces inside it, and explores the strategic dilemmas - significantly over violence and the countryside - that it more and more confronts. He argues that the move is directed opposed to capitalism itself. The common sense of aggressive accumulation that drives the program is not just expanding worldwide inequality and monetary instability, yet threatens ecological disaster and appalling clash. to satisfy the problem of world capitalism the hot protest circulation calls for, in accordance with Callinicos, an inventive synthesis of its personal inclusive and dynamic type and the easiest of the classical Marxist culture.
