Description:

James DeFilippis offers a fresh approach to understanding the impact of economic globalization on cities and communities in the US. Arguing against those who say that our communities are powerless in the face of footloose corporations, DeFilippis considers what localities can do in the face of heightened capital mobility in order to retain an autonomy that furthers egalitarian social justice.Unmaking Goliathexplores how we go about accomplishing this in practical, political terms. The book investigates these issues by analyzing contemporary collectivist organizations in housing, banking and industry and tracing their fortunes in the era of globalization.
