The New Way of the World : On Neoliberal Society Hardback
Exploring the genesis of neoliberalism, and the political and economic circumstances of its deployment, Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval dispel numerous common misconceptions.
Neoliberalism is neither a return to classical liberalism nor the restoration of "pure" capitalism.
To misinterpret neoliberalism is to fail to understand what is new about it: far from viewing the market as a natural given that limits state action, neoliberalism seeks to construct the market and make the firm a model for governments.
Only once this is grasped will its opponents be able to meet the unprecedented political and intellectual challenge it poses.
