Moving Mountains is about campaigns challenging the power, priorities, and practices of global mining corporations. Transnational mining companies are key agents of corporate globalization, which are often larger than national economies, and dominate governments and local peoples, creating fiefdoms dedicated to the single purpose of extracting resources. Contributors from a wide range of backgrounds discuss experiences, strategies, and key issues in the globalization debate, through various accounts from Canada, Australia, Bougainville, the US, and the Philippines.

Review:

'This volume brings together a number of voices concerned about the activities of the mining industry on a global scale... Some NGOs have already had considerable success in limiting the rapacious activities of multinational mining companies. The sharing of experiences and ideas, as represented in this book, helps push that process further along.' - Professor Frank Stilwell, Journal of Australian Political Economy
