Instead of the ongoing violence, economic insecurity and environmental destruction that characterize the new millennium, and our frequent sense of hopelessness that there is no other path, they provide living proof that thousands of alternatives already exist. The authors - theoreticians and activists - come from feminist, environmental, anti-imperialist, and anti-racist struggles across a wide swathe of different countries and continents. They put forward and describe both visions and already existing community initiatives that defy the tenets of corporate globalization and demonstrate that we can challenge and move beyond the systems of domination that now pose such a threat to our existence."--Jacket." ;
