About this book

Neoliberalism in Context adopts a processual, relational and contextual framework, bringing together contributions from diverse national and disciplinary contexts, and bridging theoretical and methodological approaches to critiquing neoliberalism. 

The book presents arguments on the extent to which we are still living in neoliberal times, and illustrates examples of variation in the practice of neoliberalization and within neoliberal thought. The contributions also examine the mediation and significance of existing neoliberalism on subjectivity, and addresses the consequences of the neoliberalization of education for critical thinking generally, and for the critique of neoliberalism in particular. 

This collection will be of interest to students and scholars across sociology, international relations, urban studies, and media and cultural studies.

Reviews

“What is life like under neoliberalism? The answer is anything but straightforward, not only because of the hybrid and mutable nature of neoliberalism, but also owing to the divergence of scholarly understanding and opinion. Merging Marxist and Foucauldian approaches and covering the terrains of governance, subjectivity, and education, Simon Dawes and Marc Lenormand have assembled an excellent collection that sheds new light on the moment and momentum of neoliberalism. Neoliberalism in Context reflects on where we’ve been, where we’re currently at, and what the future might hold for conceptualizing and contextualizing neoliberalism” (Simon Springer, University of Newcastle, UK)

“This rich volume of essays represents a coming of age for studies of neoliberalism's roll-out, effects and affects.  The contributions index diverse intellectual approaches to understanding neoliberalism and its diverse iterations across time and place.  Above all, the collection embodies the importance of grasping neoliberalism as a form of political economy, statecraft, non-state governing, subject formation, and a modality of reason that recasts everything from race and disability to the character of knowledge. The concluding interview with Jamie Peck blazes with intellectual and political insight.” (Wendy Brown, University of California, Berkeley, USA)

“Now over 10 years on from the financial crisis, neoliberal politics and policies continue to grow in strength across the globe. Given this, it is crucial that we confront neoliberalism in all its guises and identify potential alternatives. This book is an outstanding contribution to both these tasks. It assembles a stellar line-up of contributors to address current forms of neoliberalism by looking closely at governance, subjectivity, and the contemporary university. It is essential reading.” (Nicholas Gane, University of Warwick, UK)

“Neoliberalism has proven tenacious, both as a phenomenon and a concept, even in the wake of the global financial crisis it was implicated in over a decade ago. This enlightening collection engages with its persistence on the post-crisis landscape and leaves us with a grim appreciation of its adaptive capacity.” (Russell Prince, Massey University, New Zealand)
