"In an era in which ‘progressive neoliberalism’ has frayed, reactionary populism is on the rise and climate breakdown is visibly accelerating, activists and activist-scholars need the insightful and penetrating analyses that Alternate Routes provides" – if we are to understand and change our troubled world." - William K. Carroll, Professor of Sociology, University of Victoria, and author (with J.P. Sapinsky) of Organizing the 1%: How Corporate Power Works
“Is the glass half empty or half full? Some days it seems like the struggles for social justice are losing ground. At other moments, we see that the streets are full, and the old system is crumbling. This rich issue explores inequalities around gender, work and migration, and the movements for disability justice, indigenous resistance, reproductive justice and more. It does what Alternate Routes does so well – helps us to understand both the problems and how to change the world.” - Lesley J. Wood, author of Direct Action, Deliberation and Diffusion: Collective Action After the WTO Protests in Seattle.
“One of the key aims neoliberalism has pursued over the past 4 decades has been to destroy the institutions of working class strength and solidarity. The vulnerabilities, fears, marginalities and precarities this has created among all sorts of less than privileged workers – women, racialized minorities, migrants, and just the young – and the resistance that nevertheless emerges from these groups are the chief subjects of this valuable and wide-ranging issue of Alternate Routes.” - Radhika Desai, author of Geopolitical Economy: After US Hegemony, Globalization and Empire.
