This book examines the key debates about globalization and provides a detailed and incisive analysis of the varied and often contradictory opposition to globalization within the United States. Subjects covered include: * the historical context of the development of globalization in the US in the post-war period * opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the General Agreement on Trade & Tariffs (GATT) & the World Trade Organisation (WTO) * the nationalist response to globalization from 'militia' groups and others on the extreme right * the populist backlash against globalization * recent moves by advocates of the free market to present 'globalization with a human face'.
