Worker Resistance and Media : Challenging Global Corporate Power in the 21st Century

Peter Lang, 2015, 260 p., $40.

With developments in media technologies creating new opportunities and challenges for social movements to emerge and mobilize, this bookis a timely and necessary examination of how organized labour and workers movements are engaging with this shifting environment. Based onextensive empirical research into emerging migrant and low-wage workers movements and their media practices, this book takes a critical lookat the nature of worker resistance to ever-growing global corporate power in a digital age. Situating trade unionism in historical context, the bookconsiders other forms of worker organizations and unionism, including global unionism, social movement unionism, community unionism, andsyndicalist unionism, all of which have become increasingly relevant in a digitized world-system. At a time when the labour movement is said tobe in crisis, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in the state of the labour movement, the future of unions, and the possibilities for challenging corporate exploitation of workers today.
