Pretty cool. This actually went down in Seattle the day before I moved there in 1999. It was wild. Explains what went down that week and how members of the WTO leaders are appointed by gov leaders. Their powers can go above local, state and federal laws if they feel there are some that interfere with global trade. Check it!

This is a great book to refresh your memory about that unique time in American history when labor, students, environmentalists, and the rest were all fighting against the alphabet soup of oppression: NAFTA, GATT, IMF, WTO, etc...

Ahhh, the good old days.

Remember when people weren't really sure global warming or peak oil would happen?

Just finished!! The best part about this book is the fact that it has no bias. The unjust, foolish cops or the ignorant hippies aren't even considered. This book is about the WTO and its effect on the people of Seattle. A truely wonderful novel.

Don't expect this book to give a clear vision of the events of the N29 et al, but it's a very interesting look into the politics of the protesters.
