Editorial Reviews

True to its title, David McNally's book teaches us to read the politics of our times with an optimism of both the intellect and the heart. It offers reasons for hope based on worldwide struggles for social justice and shows us the many links of resistence that join us across the world. Another World Is Possible builds bridges from where we stand now to another, better world. - Himani Bannerji Author of Dark Side of the Nation and Returning the Gaze: Essays on Racism, Feminism and Politics
