Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Neoliberalism is a word that can easily come to mean everything and so nothing. And yet the process and relations of ‘neoliberalization’ are far more significant than either of these meanings. By focusing on places in which neoliberalization is shaped and experienced, and on critical analyses of the processes and relations of which it is constituted, this book reveals its profound importance.”
Roger Lee, Queen Mary, University of London

“This excellent collection of essays brings substance to processes of neoliberalization and their impacts in different parts of the globe, from Argentina to Canada, Nepal to China, and New Zealand to Japan. It illuminates, from diverse intellectual and disciplinary traditions, the complexity and contingency of neoliberalisms through a detailed analysis of economic and political institutions, people, places, and networks involved in their (re)production and dissemination. This needs to be understood if we are to gain a better theorized account of concrete historical realities and gain leverage for alternative political directions.”
Helga Leitner, University of Minnesota
