It s a post-Seattle world out there, and long-familiar geographical notions are reeling not only under the impact of capitalist globalization, but of myriad new linkages among globally-connected working people and communities. For cutting edge views of what all this means for the labor movement, read Place, Space and the New Labour Internationalisms. Jeremy Brecher co-author of Globalisation from Below: The Power of Solidarity (Southend Press, Boston) This is the first major interpretation of the future of labour internationalism in the wake of the Seattle protests. Waterman and Wills are to be congratulated for producing stimulating, original and forward-looking account. Robin Cohen, Dean of Humanities, University of Cape Town For those who wish to understand the potential strength and perils of labor in the neoliberal globalized world, Place, Space and the New Labour Internationalisms is essential reading. Waterman and Wills review and anticipate key battles that the labor movement will ineluctably face as corporate domination is challenged by the world-side movement for social justice. Immanuel Ness, editor of WorkingUSA: The Journal of Labor and Society
