This volume proposes an examination of how globalisation and transnational capitalism have reshaped the terrain and parameters of social, economic and political relations both at the national and the global levels, and how the relations of domination and subordination are reproduced in new forms beyond national borders. It discusses the essential question on whether the resilient hegemony of transnational capitalism can be possibly realised leading to alternative systems of organisation. The overall aim of the book can be heuristically summarised by the Chinese words for "crisis", which is made up of two syllables written with two separate characters, Wei, representing danger and opportunity, respectively! It means that there is a crisis, there is an element of danger, and that of opportunity. Consequently while it is important to understand the embedded limits of capitalism, it is equally important to continue the effort to search for alternative opportunities.
