About this book

In this book, the authors contend that "globalization" is little more than imperialism in a new form. They argue that the "inevitability" of globalization and the adjustment or submission of peoples all over the world to free market capitalism depends on the capacity of the dominant and ruling classes to bend people to their will and convince people that their interests are the people's interests.
