Danaher has written and edited many books dealing with U.S. foreign policy and the global economy. His most recent volume, Globalize This! The Battle Against the World Trade Organization and Corporate Rule came out after the mobilization against the WTO in Seattle in November, 1999. His other books include Corporations Are Gonna Get Your Mama: Globalization and the Downsizing of the American Dream, 50 Years Is Enough: The Case Against the World Bank and the IMF, and Beyond Safaris: A Guide to Building People-to-People Ties with Africa.
He is a dynamic and humorous speaker, and has helped to create two major global human and environmental watch organizations, 50 Years is Enough, and Global Exchange. Global Exchange is a human rights organization dedicated to promoting environmental, political, and social justice around the world. 50 Years Is Enough: U.S. Network for Global Economic Justice is a coalition of 205 organizations dedicated to the profound transformation of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
