About the Author Jung Min Choi is Associate Professor of Sociology at San Diego State John W. Murphy is currently Professor of Sociology at the University of Miami. In many circles globalisation is treated as an inevitable trend that reflects long-term economic cycles. As a result of this determinism, persons are told that they must adapt or suffer the social consequences of marginalization. The editors of this book, on the other hand, take seriously the invocation of many protestors nowadays that another world is both necessary and possible. The world must change dramatically, if everyone is going to prosper. Instead of adapting, the editors believe that persons should invent another, parallel social reality that enables persons, while borrowing from Latin American activists, to live well.
