The puncture of the great banking bubble and the dash to austerity has breathed new life into protest movements across the globe and brought anti-capitalist values to the forefront as never before. But what does it mean to be anti-capitalist? And where is anti-capitalism going -- if anywhere? Global civil society expert Simon Tormey explores these questions, and more, in this thought-provoking book.

Unlike other, ideologically-narrow introductions, Tormey introduces us to all the eclectic groups -- anarchists, Marxists, autonomists, environmentalists -- and thought that make up the anti-capitalist movement. Providing global and historical context, he takes us from the 1994 Zapatista insurrection through the 1999 Seattle protests right up to Occupy Wall Street, the Indignados of Spain and the current Greek uprisings. Going beyond a mere descriptive take, Tormey weighs up a rangeof possibilities for bringing about alternatives to the corporate domination of our planet. This is a fascinating and bold exploration of how to understand the world -- and how to change it.
