Transnational Social Movements and Global Politics: Solidarity Beyond the State
Jackie Smith, Charles Chatfield, Ron Pagnucco
Syracuse University Press, Jan 1, 1997 - History - 311 pages
Transnational Social Movements and Global Social Politics examines a cast of global actors left out of the traditional studies of international politics. It generates a theoretically informed view of the relationships between an emerging global civil society - partly manifested in transnational social movements - and international political institutions.
This book consists of fifteen essays, all written by experts in the field. The first three parts analyze the rise of transnational social movements in the context of broad twentieth-century trends. A fourth part builds a theoretical framework from which organizations influencing global governance can be viewed.
