Subjects covered include:
* the historical context of the development of globalization in the US in the post-war period
* opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the General Agreement on Trade & Tariffs (GATT) & the World Trade Organisation (WTO)
* the nationalist response to globalization from 'militia' groups and others on the extreme right
* the populist backlash against globalization
* recent moves by advocates of the free market to present 'globalization with a human face'.
