Utilizing research on networked struggles in both the 18th-century Atlantic world and our modern day, Resistance, Space and Political Identities: The Making of Counter-Global Networks challenges existing understandings of the relations between space, politics, and resistance to develop an innovative account of networked forms of resistance and political activity.
  • Explores counter-global struggles in both the past and present - including both the 18th-century Atlantic world and contemporary forms of resistance
  • Examines the productive geographies of contestation
  • Foregrounds the solidarities and geographies of connection between different place-based struggles and argues that such solidarities are essential to produce more plural forms of globalization
