The Chinese Communist Party’s response to the wave of factory strikes in the early summer of 2010 has raised important questions about the role that labour plays in the transformation of world orders. In contrast to previous policies of repression towards labour unrest, these recent disputes centring round wages and working conditions have been met with a more permissive response on the part of the state, as the CCP ostensibly seeks to facilitate a transition away from a model of political economy based on ‘low-road’ labour relations and export dependence. Labour and Development in East Asia shows that such inter-linkages between labour, geopolitical transformations, and states’ developmental strategies have been much more central to East Asia’s development than has commonly been recognised. By adopting an explanatory framework of the labour-geopolitics-development nexus, the book theorises and provides an historical analysis of the formation and transformation of the East Asian regional political economy from the end of the Second World War to the present, with particular reference to Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and China. This book will be required reading for students and scholars of international relations, development studies and comparative politics.

This book provides a new point of departure for thinking critically and creatively about international borders and the perceived need to defend them, adopting an innovative ‘preferred future’ methodology. The authors critically examine a range of ‘border domains’ including law, citizenship, governance, morality, security, economy, culture and civil society, which provide the means and justification for contemporary border controls, and identify early signs that the dynamics of sovereignty and borders are being fundamentally transformed under conditions of neoliberal globalization. The goal is to locate potential pathways towards the preferred future of relaxed borders, and provide a foundation for a progressive politics dedicated to moving beyond mere critique of the harm and inequity of border controls and capable of envisaging a differently bordered world. This book will be of considerable interest to students of border studies, migration, criminology, peacemaking, critical security studies and IR in general.

Are there existing alternatives to corporate globalization? What are the prospects for and commonalities between communities and movements such as Occupy, the World Social Forum and alternative economies? Globalization Development and Social Justice advances the proposition that another globalization is not only possible, but already exists. It demonstrates that there are multiple pathways towards development with social justice and argues that enabling propositional agency, rather than oppositional agency such as resistance, is a more effective alternative to neoliberal globalization. El Khoury develops a theory of infraglobalization that emphasizes creative constitution, not just contestation, of global and local processes. The book features case studies and examples of diverse economic practice and innovative emergent political forms from the Global South and North. These case studies are located in the informal social economy and community development, as well as everyday practices, from prefigurative politics to community cooperatives and participatory planning. This book makes an important contribution to debates about the prospects for, and practices of, a transformative grassroots globalization, and to critical debates about globalization and development strategies. It will be of interest to students and scholars of international relations, globalization, social movement studies, political and economic geography, sociology, anthropology and development studies.

„Der Abschluss einer sozialistischen Revolution ist im nationalen Rahmen undenkbar. Sie beginnt auf nationalem Boden, entwickelt sich international und wird vollendet in der Weltarena. Folglich wird die sozialistische Revolution in einem neuen, breiteren Sinne des Wortes zu einer permanenten Revolution: Sie findet ihren Abschluss nicht vor dem endgültigen Siege der neuen Gesellschaft auf unserem ganzen Planeten.“ Die Theorie der permanenten Revolution bildete 1917 die strategische Grundlage der russischen Oktoberrevolution. Sechs Jahre später stand sie im Mittelpunkt der Angriffe auf die Linke Opposition, die sich der bürokratischen Entartung der Sowjetunion und dem Stalinismus widersetzte. Die Theorie der permanenten Revolution geht auf Marx und Engels zurück. Auf ihrer Grundlage entwickelte der junge Leo Trotzki 1906 in „Ergebnisse und Perspektiven“ die zukünftige Strategie der Oktoberrevolution. Unter dem Titel „Die permanente Revolution“ verteidigte er sie 1928 gegen die stalinistischen Angriffe und Verfälschungen. Dieses Buch ist bis heute eine der aktuellsten Schriften der sozialistischen Bewegung. Die vorliegende Ausgabe fasst beide Werke in einem Band zusammen.
