This book attempts to save globalization from both its critics and its advocates. The argument the author presents is that globalization is associated with the economic growth necessary to alleviate poverty. Globalization therefore should be encouraged. At the same time, however, governments must adopt policies that address the needs of those who are victimized by the dislocations caused by the process. The book thus responds to the opponents by emphasizing globalization's potential to alleviate poverty but is at the same time critical of those who defend globalization without acknowledging the costs it imposes on innocent victims. In addressing the activist opponents of the process, the author maintains that they should not reject the global integration of world markets out of a concern for justice. Instead of either turning against globalization or advocating United States unilateralism in shaping the global economy, activists can advance the interests of the world's poor by mounting political movements to promote international agreements to stabilize the world economy and ensure labor rights.
