The Global Trap: Globalization and the Assault on Prosperity and Democracy

by Hans-Peter Martin


The Global Trap is an extraordinary book that explores the spread of globalization and its effects. The authors provide an account that is highly informed, yet extremely readable, showing how internationalism, once an invention of social-democratic labor leaders, has firmly changed sides. Now more than 40,000 transnational corporations play off their own workers -- and different nation-states -- against one another. Calling for the restoration of the primacy of politics over economics and the repair of the state, this book is a cry of alarm. Currently being translated into 13 languages, The Global Trap is set to become an international bestseller; it cannot be ignored.
