Beschreibung

Utilizing research on networked struggles in both the 18th-century Atlantic world and our modern day, Resistance, Space and Political Identities: The Making of Counter-Global Networks challenges existing understandings of the relations between space, politics, and resistance to develop an innovative account of networked forms of resistance and political activity.

  • Explores counter-global struggles in both the past and present—including both the 18th-century Atlantic world and contemporary forms of resistance
  • Examines the productive geographies of contestation
  • Foregrounds the solidarities and geographies of connection between different place-based struggles and argues that such solidarities are essential to produce more plural forms of globalization


David Featherstone is a lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Liverpool. He has key research interests in space, politics and resistance and has published papers in several journals, including Society and Space, Antipode and Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers.

Klappentext
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.
