Reviews

'Bello's analyses and suggestions for action are refreshingly clear and direct, and he gives a valuable account of the re-subordination of the South over the last quarter-century. 'Deglobalization' is to be recommended above all for the invigorating energy with which it sets out an oppositional agenda.' - New Left Review, July 2003 'This short concise volume is a guidebook no activist should travel without.' - Briarpatch Magazine, May 2003 'Clear analysis and impressive scholarship have made Bello one of Asia's key progressive thinkers. Insistence on people-centered development grounded in ecological sustainability sets him apart from the elite consensus on Asia' - New Internationalist 'The most respected anti-globalization thinker in Asia' - Le Soir (Belgium) 'Among the expanding constellation of activists, academicians, and thinkers who believe that mainstream economics... does not have an answer to people's needs, Walden Bello is a prominent star' - Bangkok Post 'Whatever subject he tackles, Walden Bello is always thoughtful, trenchant and constructive. He's also an authentic hero of the global justice movement.' - Susan George Walden Bello is the worlds leading no-nonsense revolutionary. With plainspoken history and compelling evidence, he ruthlessly exposes the opportunism, plunder, and backroom bullying that passes for global capitalism. But this is more than a critique: Bellos expert diagnosis is that the patient is sicker than we think, and the time to act is now - Naomi Klein, author, No Logo 'De-Globalization is a superb dissection of contemporary capitalism's multiple crises, a powerful indictment of the US's brutal re-subordination of the global South in the interest of its MNCs and banks, an unanswerable demonstration of the unreformability of the IMF and its sister institutions, and a stirring call to arms for the movement for economic justice by one of its major theorists and organizers.' - Robert Brenner
