Book Summary

The outcomes of globalization are neither smooth nor unilinear; rather, they are dialectical, multifaceted, uneven, and sometimes chaotic, pointing in several different directions at once. Neoliberalism and Globalization in Africa examines Africa's involvement in neoliberal globalization, and highlights the socioeconomic and cultural costs of the grossly unbalanced structure of global wealth and power between Africa and the rest of the world. The narratives in the book pay special attention to contestations-both discursively and in practice. And with the emphasis on contestation, readers will come to appreciate the tactics and maneuvers deployed by African social resistance movements to interrogate and confront contemporary neoliberal globalization.
