Is economic globalization irresistible? One of its main effects has been to shield financiers and investors from democratic processes deemed out-of-sync with powerful economic interests. This book is an inquiry into the ways by which citizens and states may be able to undo some of these constraints imposed by transnational legality.

Reviews

"Schneiderman's book offers, undoubtedly, a wellspring for further theoretical work on this 'exotic' area, inquiring into the opportunities for effective 'politics of resistance' after economic globalization and the importance of the 'local' in the global discourse." - Ricardo Campos, International Journal of Constitutional Law
