Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Writing from the front lines, Starhawk chronicles the global justice movement sparked by Seattle's 1999 anti-World Trade Organization protest. A life-long activist, Starhawk is deeply involved as a direct action participant and trainer in the antiglobalization movement.

The book is divided into "Actions" and "Visions." In Part I, Starhawk begins with an overview of the complex political and economic powers that the antiglobalization movement opposes. Then, recounting the blow-by-blow events of the critical confrontations faced by the antiglobalization protestors-from Seattle to Genoa-Starhawk discusses police brutality, the Black Bloc versus the pacifists, and the magic of solidarity.

In Part II, Starhawk spins a vision of the future of the antiglobalization movement. Drawing on her twenty years of experience as an activist, ecofeminist, and witch, she explores the debate between violent and nonviolent tactics; the definition of an economy of true abundance; and how we can transform our rage and despair, face our fears, and renew our spirits while acting to change the world.

Starhawk is the author or coauthor of eight books, including "The Twelve Wild Swans: Journeys Into Magic, Healing and Action" (HarperSanFrancisco, 2000); the Twentieth Anniversary Edition of "The Spiral Dance" (HarperSanFrancisco, 1999); and "Circle Round: Raising Children in the Goddess Tradition" (Bantam, 1998). Well-known in the Wiccan and Pagan Community, Starhawk is a columnist on the web for beliefnet.com and for znet. She lives in San Francisco.
