About this book

This volume brings together well-versed authors from four continents to critically discuss the roots of neoliberalism and how academics use the word today. Neoliberalism has recently recycled and mutated towards new forms of radicalization where fear plays a leading role legitimating policies, which would otherwise be overtly neglected by citizens. The authors ignite a new discussion within social sciences, combining the advances of sociology, history, anthropology, communication and the theory of mobilities to understand the different faces and guises of neoliberalism.

Reviews

“This book makes a very significant and original contribution to our understanding of neoliberalism. Its originality lies in its ability to map out both from below and from above the political, cultural, and economic consequences of the loss of state power that ensues with the implementation of neoliberalism. This volume also provides a veritable international understanding of neoliberalism with its authors from across the globe. This book is a must read!” (Brett Troyan, Professor of History, State University of New York, Cortland College, USA)

“Neoliberalism in Multi-Disciplinary Perspective is important for at least two reasons. On the one hand, it introduces non-Spanish speaking scholars to leading Latin American authors on neoliberalism as well as exposing readers to approaches from France, United States, Israel, Spain, and Italy. On the other, it covers in depth a theme neglected in discussions on the topic:  how neoliberal economics and politics constitutes the very sensibilities—fear, contingency, ephemerality, compulsive consumption, and ‘tourism’—of we who live within the framework it imposes upon us. In effect, this ‘politics of sensibility’ expands Marx’s idea of alienation.” (Fred Evans, Professor of Philosophy, Duquesne University, USA)

“This volume helps expand the terms of debate about ‘neoliberalism.’ The result is a rich and informative text. The first part of the book provides many insights on a wide variety of theoretical issues related to neoliberalism, such as: the alleged breakdown of the so-called ‘republican pact,’ the dynamics of ‘progressive’ co-optation, the culture of terror, the spread of consumer-mentality, to the management and compression of time. The second part of the book sketches dynamics of ‘living neoliberalism’ across many different contexts, including very interesting chapters on ‘body, emotion and terror in Chile,’ a radical critique of tourism, experiences of work in the ‘new economy’ among youth in Italy, and privacy and hacking. The book takes an important step towards providing a more theoretically sophisticated and a less U.S.-centric, more re-centered, understanding of neoliberalism in global perspective.”  (Thomas Jeffrey Miley, Lecturer of Political Sociology, Fellow of Darwin College, University of Cambridge, UK)
