Neoliberalism - The Key Concepts


Neoliberalism - The Key Concepts

3 June 2016

Antonian Matthew Eagleton-Pierce (DPhil International Relations) has recently published a new book, Neoliberalism: The Key Concepts (Routledge, 2016). The book is a critical guide to 44 major terms which have become dominant in the neoliberal period, including choice, competition, market, partnership, and state. 

Neoliberalism: The Key Concepts provides a critical guide to a vocabulary that has become globally dominant over the past forty years. The language of neoliberalism both constructs and expresses a particular vision of economics, politics, and everyday life. Some find this vision to be appealing, but many others find the contents and implications of neoliberalism to be alarming. Despite the popularity of these concepts, they often remain confusing, the product of contested histories, meanings, and practices.

Complete with an introductory essay, cross-referencing, and an extensive bibliography, this book provides a unique and insightful introduction to the study of neoliberalism in all its forms and disguises.
