Title: Difficult Legacy, a radical criticism on the book Working through the past
Author: Korstanje, Maximiliano
Abstract: During years United States dominated the international affair and diplomatic relationship in the World. After the collapse of Soviet Union, this northern power enthralled as a real empire which accelerated the process of globalization among central and peripheral economies (Kehoane & Zeckhauser, 2003). Ideologically as professor Geoff Skoll puts it, the enthusiasm of capitalism respecting to communism consisted in expanding the belief that US offered the best of the possible worlds (Skoll & Korstanje 2013; Skoll 2016). In this context, 9/11 not only was a striking blow but also a clear indicator the atmosphere of liberty Americans enjoyed was a simple illusion. Further, Snowden`s scandal and NSA evinced to what extent government introduced intrusive technologies of surveillance that vulnerates the autonomy of private life (Skoll 2014). Lay-citizens were surveilled secretly by the government they voted in which case it suggests a dichotomy between democracy and dictatorship. Although many studies have discussed causes and effects of terrorism, less attention was to its intersection with capitalist system, first and foremost with worker unions. In the present corollary chapter, we place the book Working Through the Past under the lens of scrutiny. In this project, which is edited by Teri Caraway, Maria Lorena Cook and Stephen Crowley, the conforming chapters analyze the influence of authoritarian legacies in the way labor is organized, which means how worker unions negotiate with capital-owners
