Democracy, States, and the Struggle for Global Justice 
(Routledge, 2009)

Democracy, States, and the Struggle for Global Justice draws on the fields of geography, political theory, and cultural studies to analyze novel forms of democracy. Using case studies, the text explores the meaning of radical democracy in the light of new theories, the role of states in developing new forms of democracy, and new scales of democracy—from local to global, from street protests to transnational movements. Omar Dahbour (Hunter) is professor of philosophy at the Graduate Center. Ashley Dawson (Staten Island) is associate professor of English at the Graduate Center. Neil Smith (Hunter) is distinguished professor of anthropology and earth and environmental sciences at the Graduate Center.
