In November 1999 the first protests associated with the "anti-globalisation movement" took place in Seattle, and came to be seen as the starting point for globalised resistance to neoliberal capitalism. However, the following years have seen little progress in formulating a coherent alternative to neoliberalism, a failure more poignant in the aftermath of the recent credit crisis.

In this book, Owen Worth assesses the growing diversity of resistance to neoliberalism and argues that the more reactionary alternatives to globalization currently provide just as coherent a base for building opposition as those associated with the traditional "left-wing" anti-globalisation movements. From the shortcomings of the Occupy movement to the rise of Radical Islam - Worth shows that while a progressive alternative cannot be taken for granted.
