From the Publisher"In this highly original study of contemporary free-tradeliberalism, Jean-Claude Michea develops and brings to a conclusionhis decade-long duel with the bankrupt thinking of theinstitutionalized Left. The originality of Michea's approachconsists in his strenuous effort to discover and unravel theoriginal populist themes in Marx's work, themes that return -recycled and somewhat refashioned - in present-day liberalindividualism. This allows him to rewrite, in a controversial yetfascinating manner, the history of modernity. The result is a bookthat should be widely read and discussed and should stir up debateacross the social sciences, drowning as they now are in a staleconcoction of yesterday's intellectual fashions."
