Product description

Specifically, the book tackles the question: Who exactly are the anti-capitalists and what do they want? Simon Tormey examines the ideas of the various components that make up the movement: the anarchists and Marxists, the greens and environmentalists, the anti-corporate activists and autonomists, among many others. He looks in detail at how the movement operates its reliance on a unique combination of word-of-mouth, the internet, and communications technology. The examples he draws on include the efforts of the Zapatistas, who helped the indigenous peoples of the Chiapas region of Mexico to establish an autonomous zone beyond the clutches of the Mexican state.
