Globalization is transforming the world in ways that we are only just beginning to understand. It is often assumed that social movements, such as that of labour, will simply be overwhelmed by these changes. The contributions in this volume point to this conclusion as at best premature and possibly also misguided. The text is split into three parts, globalization, spatial dimensions and social dimensions, each of which contains four chapters. Each chapter offers a perspective from differing spatial and social realities thus providing the reader with a balanced overview of the development of labour-based challenge to the ravages of globalization.
