The crucible of North American neoliberal transformation is heating up, but its outcome is far from clear. Examining the clash between the corporate offensive and the forces of resistance from both pan-continental and class-struggle perspectives, the authors argue that the failure of traditional labour responses has led workers to explore new strategies of struggle, including a continental labour movement.

This expanded edition examines developments in the offensive of North American big business, especially the blitzkrieg of constitutional reforms in Mexico in 2013–14. This crisis and its implications for the North American left and labour movements are explored in greater depth. This edition also includes new material from Leo Panitch and Steve Early, as well as the original preface by Mel Watkins.
