Empire - Antonio Negri and Michael Hardt

Antonio Negri and Michael Hardt argue that globalisation is transforming individual nation states into a system of diffuse national and global institutions of power - in other words a new type of Empire - which raises the possibility for a "multitude" of people to fight it.

Cant find the ICG text on libcom just now but the ideas expressed in this book are critically reviewed by Aufeben in the library here and in the article 'Working Class or Multitude' by IP in their issue 46 here:

Thanks Mike, I've added a link to the Aufheben review and another one now.

I couldn't get your link to work for some reason but possibly this one will work. The review starts on page 34.
