The 1999 'battle in Seattle' came to be seen as the starting point for resistance to neoliberal capitalism. Yet the years since have seen little progress in formulating a coherent alternative, a failure that is particularly poignant now that the neoliberal mandate has been resurgent through the post-crisis 'age of austerity'. This timely book argues that, troublingly, reactionary alternatives to globalization currently provide as solid a base for building opposition as those of the left
