Valentine M. Moghadam
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2009 - 168pages

Deftly combining nuanced theory with rich empirical examples, leading scholar Valentine M. Moghadam shows how both physical and electronic mobility has helped to create dynamic global social movements. Exploring the historical roots of Islamism, feminism, and global justice, the book also shows how these movements have been stimulated by relatively recent globalization processes, including neoliberalism, war, and hegemonic masculinities. Moghadam examines similarities and differences among the three movements, along with internal differentiation within each. Her argument is informed by feminism, world-systems, world polity, and social movement theories in a seamlessly integrated framework that will be essential reading for all students of globalization.
