Muhr (global development U. of Bristol, UK, and Johannes Kepler U., Austria) suggests in his introductory chapter that the global crisis of capitalism has reawakened interest in socialism and, probably, communism. He has brought together 13 contributions pertaining to ALBA-TCP (Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America--Peoples' Trade Agreement), filling a gap in the literature that he encountered during his doctoral and post-doctoral research. Contributors are scholars of public international law, economics, social research and development, and popular culture, as well as social justice activists with plenty of experience on the ground. The approach is interdisciplinary, and coverage encompasses politics and processes, principles, political economy, culture, education, and the environment.
