SAGE begins publishing
Alternatives: Global, Local, Political

Los Angeles, CA (April 18, 2011) – SAGE has begun to publish the journal Alternatives: Global, Local, Political.

Established in 1975, Alternatives has long sought to promote a wide range of approaches to political, social, cultural and ecological developments, and to encourage more creative and imaginative ways of thinking and acting globally.

“We’re excited that Alternatives has found a new home at SAGE,” said Editor Professor R.B.J. Walker. “We’re proud of the opportunity to team up and make a larger impact on analyses of, and responses to, the transformative dynamics of our increasingly shared but also differentiated world.”

Alternatives is published in association with the Center for the Study of Developing Societies (India). It encourages submission of articles that engage contemporary political problems in a way that is applicable to people across the world while maintaining theoretical rigor, empirical precision and a culturally sensitive imagination.

“SAGE is pleased to add Alternatives to our journals publications family,” said Jayne Marks, SAGE Vice President and Editorial Director, Library Information Group. “We look forward to working together to help provide a forum of conversation about the political problems of people from all over the world.”


A peer-reviewed journal, Alternatives explores the possibilities of new forms of political practice and identity under increasingly global conditions. Specifically, the editors focus on the changing relationships between local political practices and identities and emerging forms of global economy, culture, and polity.
