The Zapatista movement and its leader Subcomandante Marcos have attracted enormous political and scholarly attention ever since their uprising began in Chiapas, Mexico, in 1994. The movement not only struck a chord inside the country as Mexico was switching to neoliberal economics and attaching itself to the USA in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), but it rapidly evoked an extraordinary up-welling of political interest and solidarity in the Americas and worldwide. Thomas Olesen explores this phenomenon in the context of globalization and the networking and communications potential of the Internet. What is the infrastructure of the global Zapatista solidarity network? What activities has it engaged in? What enabled it to develop? What are the longer term implications for new kinds of political action and international solidarity? And what can social theory tell us about the new global patterns of social interaction that are emerging?

The Midnight Notes Collective looks here not only at Mexico's Zapatista revolution directly, but also at its enlightening and heating effects on the new social struggles elsewhere (in Canada, India, Yugoslavia, the United States) against the latest forms of capitalism, "neo-liberalism" and "globalization."This book aims to provide a special slant of light illuminating the slow and often unconscious formation of an "anti-globalization" movement - a movement confronting a collective body of social capital rapidly and self-consciously operating on a global level in the last decades - and creating what the Zapatistas call "the Fourth World War."

This book considers the recent growth of tourism in transitional societies in Latin America and the Caribbean. Research in Cuba, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Peru reveals that tourism often takes up where social transformation leaves off and may even benefit from the formerly off-limits status of nations that have undergone periods of conflict or rebellion.

Inside Terrorism

In this revised edition, the author analyzes the new adversaries, motivations, and tactics of global terrorism that have emerged in recent years, focusing specifically on how Al Qaeda has changed since 9/11; the reasons behind its resiliency, resonance, and longevity; and its successful use of the Internet and videotapes to build public support and gain new recruits. He broadens the discussion by evaluating the potential repercussions of the Iraqi insurgency, the use of suicide bombers, terrorist exploitation of new communications media, and the likelihood of a chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear terrorist strike. Looking at the U.S., he reconsiders the Timothy McVeigh case and the threats posed by American Christian white supremacists and abortion opponents as well as those posed by militant environmentalists and animal rights activists. He argues that the attacks on the World Trade Center fundamentally transformed the West's view of the terrorist threat.

Unravelling Gramsci

Unravelling Gramsci makes extensive use of Antonio Gramsci’s writings, including his much-overlooked pre-prison journalism, prison letters, as well as his prison notebooks, to provide a fresh approach to understanding his contemporary relevance in the current neoliberal world order. Adam Morton examines in detail the themes of hegemony, passive revolution and uneven development to provide a useful way of analysing the contemporary global political economy, the project of neoliberalism, processes of state formation, and practices of resistance. The book explores the theoretical and practical limitations of how Gramsci’s ideas can be used today, offering a broad insight into state formation and the international factors shaping hegemony within a capitalist framework.

This highly-innovative volume provides the first sustained academic focus on cyberliterature and cyberculture in Latin America, investigating the ways in which this form of cultural production is providing new configurations of subjects, narrative voices, and even political agency. Despite cyberculture’s spread throughout the Hispanic diaspora, much of the influence of this new discipline on Latin American culture remains undocumented. This timely volume focuses on the inclusivity of this new scholarship and provides extensive geographical coverage of topics as diverse as Chicano border writing and Brazilian and Argentine cybercultural phenomena.

Subverting the Present Imagining the Future

To subvert is to bring to the fore what is hidden beneath the forms of bourgeois respectability - a respectability in which every human contents has its price. To subvert is to imagine the communist individual in revolt against any system - economic, political, cultural or religious - where humanity is no more than an object to be manipulated, exploited, and dominated. This volume examines the social-historical constitution of capitalism and its dynamic, analyses the contemporary means of subversion-in-movement, and assesses the trajectory of struggles in the Americas, from Argentina to Mexico, from Bolivia to the United States of America. Authors include the Midnight Notes Collective, Massimo De Angelis, Werner Bonefeld, Paul Zarembka, Mariarosa Dalla Costa, the Leeds May Day Group, Harry Cleaver, Nick Dyer-Witheford, Stevphen Shukaitis, Ana Dinerstein, George Caffentzis, Conrad Herold, Patrick Cuninghame, and Sergio Tischler.

The 20th Century was pre-eminently an age of revolutions - in Russia, China, Cuba and elsewhere - that fundamentally transformed the nature of politics and social arrangements. As we enter a new century, has it got harder for revolutions to occur in the new unipolar, globalized world? Here, John Foran asks: is the era of revolution over?; if so, why?; and if not, what might the revolutions of the future?

The Making of a Transnational Capitalist Class

Throughout the world, there has been a growing wave of interest in global corporate power and the rise of a transnational capitalist class, triggered by economic and political transformations that have blurred national borders and disembedded corporate business from national domiciles. Using social network analysis, William Carroll maps the changing field of power generated by elite relations among the world's largest corporations and related political organizations. Carroll provides an in-depth analysis that spans the three decades of the late 20th and early 21st century, when capitalist globalization attained unprecedented momentum, propelled both by the transnationalization of accumulation and by the political paradigm of transnational neoliberalism. This has been an era in which national governments have deregulated capital, international institutions such as the World Trade Organization and the World Economic Forum have gained prominence, and production and finance have become more fully transnational, increasing the structural power of capital over communities and workers. Within this context of transformation, the book charts the making of a transnational capitalist class, reaching beyond national forms of capitalist class organization into a global field, but facing spirited opposition from below in an ongoing struggle that is also a struggle over alternative global futures.
