Review:
"The first in-depth study of localism as a movement, this book offers a unique integration of the concrete and specific within a theoretical and political framework. Indispensable to scholars and activists alike."--Gar Alperovitz, Lionel R. Bauman Professor of Political Economy, University of Maryland, College Park, author of "America Beyond Capitalism" and co-author of "Unjust Deserts"

"At a time when faith in footloose corporations and the growth-dependent state is being shaken to the core, we must ask 'Is there an alternative?' In "Localist Movements in a Global Economy, " David Hess is ahead of the curve with one intriguing answer: localism. In addition to thoroughly documenting localist trends already underway, Hess points to a hopeful economy, one at once local and global, where ownership is close at hand and ecological constraint is a given."--Thomas Princen, Department of Natural Resources and the Environment, University of Michigan, author of "The Logic of Sufficiency"

"A clear-eyed and intensively researched analysis of the ways in which localism does or does not promote a more sustainable and just world. Analyses of localism have been generally split between romantic advocates and cynical critics, but very few researchers have stepped back and carried out the kind of careful and objective analysis of the claims and the critiques of localism that David Hess has done here. This book provides the most in-depth grappling of this issue to date. The case studies bring the book to life and will engage a wide variety of readers at a wide range of interest and understanding."--E. Melanie DuPuis, Department of Sociology, University of California, Santa Cruz
