    Abstract

    What is the G8? Every year world leaders convene for their annual conference, accompanied by thousands of protestors and anti-globalization activists. In Genoa in 2001, street battles between police and demonstrators made world headlines, as one protestor was shot. / This book is a one-stop guide for anyone who wants to know more about the G8, what it is, and why it's a problem. Leading writers including Noam Chomsky, Walden Bello, George Monbiot and Caroline Lucas explain in brief, succinct chapters, why the G8 encourages unjust and unsustainable policies. / Chapters cover G8 attitudes to the key issues: war, corporate power, climate change, immigration, trade, food. Ideal for anyone who is troubled by the current direction set by our world leaders, this book is also a great tool for activists.
