Jean Franco, Columbia University:
Surviving Globalization offers valuable insights into the impact of global economic policies on rural communities in Nicaragua and Brazil and among the Guarani of Bolivia through the personal testimonies of local activists. Their narratives show grass-roots democracy at work as these men and women recount their struggles to improve literacy and health, to run cooperatives and protect the environment. Denis Heyck's admirably detailed introductions to each of these communities do not scant the complexity of their relations to local, national and international forces.
