47768Third and final taster from Marxism and Social Movements (Brill, 2013) – my own chapter on social movements in the postcolonial global South this time: Contesting the Postcolonial Development Project.

The praxis of social movements in theglobal South constitutes a reinvention of the direction and meaning of development at atime when the cracks and fissures of neoliberal hegemony are widening rapidly. In this chapter, I try to contribute to the building of conceptually adequate and politically enabling analyses of the character and dynamics of popular resistance in the global South by developing a Marxist analysis of popular resistance to dam building on the Narmada River in central India.
