Description

Neoliberalism - the doctrine that market exchange is an ethic in itself, capable of acting as a guide for all human action - has become dominant in both thought and practice throughout much of the world since 1970 or so. Writing for a wide audience, David Harvey, author of The New Imperialism and The Condition of Postmodernity, here tells the political-economic story of where neoliberalization came from and how it proliferated on the world stage. Through critical engagement with this history, he constructs a framework, not only for analyzing the political and economic dangers that now surround us, but also for assessing the prospects for the more socially just alternatives being advocated by many oppositional movements.

Excellent Explanation

This really lays everything out in detail and provides an understanding of the issues and problems of an extremely important mode of thought affecting us all deeply.

Monotone reader

This is a great book if you're interested in a western history of the rise of Neoliberalism or if you need to read it for school like I do. However this reader is terrible! Half way through every sentence he raises his pitch and ends every sentence on a low note. It was extremely annoying

Absolutely wonderful primer

David Harvey's Brief History of Neo-Liberalism rings more frighteningly true in 2018 than it did back when it was published in the previous decade. must listen/read for anyone seeking to understand the ideology which currently runs our modern world.

Out of date

Professor Harvey needs to update this book. It is out of date and factually wrong about China.

essential reading

this book is essential reading for anyone who loves politics or economics and wants to understand the rising of neoliberalism throughout the 20th and 21 century. this book offers a thorough, well researched critic of the neoliberal ideology and application throughout the world. my only complaint was that the book can go through dense information rather quickly at times

So happy this is available as an audiobook!

The book as a whole is quite convincing, and therefore depressing. After listening, I feel I have a much better grasp of neoliebralism, even if it's more of a powerless grasp.

Great Breakdown of Contemporary Economics

David Harvey does a great job of revealing the contradictions and hypocrisies instrinsic of neoliberalism/neoconservatism. Not only does he paint a detailed picture of how these systems work, but provides historical context about why these systems are unsustainable for humanitarian progression. A lot of Marx inspired authors will limit themselves to dogma, however, Harvey goes beyond what Marx envisioned long ago, transforming some of his tenants into viable contemporary criticism.

Essential introduction to neoliberalism

This is truly an essential reading if one is to fully appreciate how class, industry, and capital coalesced into neoliberalism; and the concomitant and compounding influence it has had on domestic and global markets and human potentiality. Very comprehensive overview.

Also, I found the narrator to be perfectly tolerable. Worth the investment, for sure.

Informative, Dense, Well-Researched, Well-Read

Other reviews say the reader is annoying. I don't see it. Might be a xenophobic bias toward other accents; might just be a matter of taste. But the content, it seems to me, is emphatically *not* a matter of taste. It's just straight-up true. The neo-liberal and neo-conservative movements have led to our current political situation, with frightening consequences for the environment and people -- esp. in the global south, for reasons the author details. (The consequences may well also doom neo-liberal/neo-conservative policies, depending on how 2020 turns out.) One reviewer noted that the info on China is outdated. Fair point. Another noted that it's not objective, but provided no examples of this. It's true that the book is written from a leftist perspective, but it's not fair to use that as a criticism, rather than a challenge to debate the facts/evidence presented.

Brief Genealogy of Noeliberalism

Magnificent scholarship of the post-war order and an examination of foundations, limitations, and contradictions of the neoliberal project.

Hard to believe I read the same book as others

I found this excruciating to listen to and I'm not even talking about the annoying downward inflection of the narrator who grated on me like Chinese water torture at the end of every damn sentence.

A history of anything this is not. This is simply one person's misaligned worldview of all things dear to the left presented in a discombobulated and unconvincing manner. Indeed, the endless handwringing and snide opinions voiced by some pompous sounding Brit made me hurl my headphones to the floor in disgust.

The title is very misleading. This is anything but an objective history.
