What impressed me was the novelty of the analysis presented and its great usefulness in understanding many of the psychological and social dimensions of globalisazation-related phenomena we observe on the Latin American scene -- David Molineaux, Maryknoll Mission Association of the Faithful, Santiago, Chile This is an academic and theoretical analysis of the issues concerning the impact of globalisation upon societies around the world. The post Cold War experience of Central and Eastern Europe has seen a huge chasm emerge between the few newly rich and the mass of suddenly poor, under the impact of market forces and dismantling of communist era welfare systems: very many people have now become 'the vulnerable', social tensions and in some cases, violent upheaval, have resulted. Latin America, which has seen the financial collapse in Argentina, is now increasingly opposing US led neo liberal globalisation by electing left style regimes, of which Chavez in Venezuela is the leading example. In Africa, popular resistance to Western exploitation of resources, as in Nigeria, can take violent forms. Two decades of free market globalisation have shown how it destroys communities, increases social tensions and can lead to violence, while producing wealth for a minority. The violence of poverty and conflict are closely related. The author, who lectures on International Relations and Globalisation at Dublin City University, cogently argues that both vulnerability and violence are major features of the new world order created and driven by neoliberal free market globalisaiton. Understanding the dynamics of globalisation is essential for all working for peace in today's world. -- World Disarm
