Very Good. 0965058328 Text free of underlining, writing and highlighting. Very nice clean copy. Book Description DAVOS, SWITZERLAND? The Times Mexico correspondent Julia Preston recently told me an intriguing story about the Zapatista guerrillas, the peasant group that has been fighting the effects of free trade and globalization on Mexico. Last year, the Zapatistas held a convention in the jungles of southern Mexico, entitled "The Intercontinental Forum in Favor of Humanity and Against Neo-Liberalism." The closing session met in a steamy, mudhole amphitheater and was led by Zapatista leader "Sub-Commander Marcos"? a Mexican combination of Robin Hood and Ralph Nader. The session ended with the Zapatistas doing a kind of drum roll and announcing the most evil, dangerous institution in the world today. To a standing ovation, the Zapatistas declared the biggest enemy of mankind to be the W.T.O. ? the World Trade Organization in Geneva, which promotes global free trade. IT'S NOT SURPRISING that the Zapatistas figured out that the W.T.O. was the embodiment of globalization and was having a huge impact on their lives and jobs. What's interesting is \ how many serious scholars recently have joined the Zapatistas in asking whether globalization? the integration of trade, finance, and information that is creating a single global market and culture? is a threat to humanity or its salvation and whether it's inexorable or can be rolled back. JUST THIS MONTH you have George Soros's essay in The Atlantic Monthly entitled "The Capitalist Threat, " in which the financier argues that the spread of brutal global capitalism has replaced Communism as the main threat to democratic societies. 107 pages.
