        Teresa Brennan

        Routledge 2003

        ISBN 9780415285230

      1. An important critic of the impact of globalization in the face of dominant neoliberal claims of its essential liberating powers, Brennan’s book is unique in that her focus is not just on how globalization hurts the people in the third world—she also presents an analysis of how it harms affluent communities in the West. On that basis argues for a global call to action against the main drive of globalization. See in particular section 2 Daily Life in the West, in which Brennan outlines some of the most deleterious negative effects of globalization on people in the ‘first world.’
