Though neoliberalism has faced renewed challenges in recent years, it nonetheless remains the dominant ideology throughout much of the West. This book brings together a stellar group of social and policy analysts to mount a powerful challenge to neoliberal framing and policies. The disparate contributions of these contributors—whose numbers include Colin Crouch, Anna Coote, Grahame Thompson, and Ted Benton, among others—are then synthesized by the editors into a larger framework for social democracy, one that is rooted in feminism, environmentalism, democratic equality, and the accountability of the market to the greater needs of civil society. Designed for both teaching and research, planning and practice, it will be invaluable for both politics and policy in the years ahead.
Review Quotes
Liberation
“The current generation of educators and practitioners of political discourse have not operated in contexts other than neoliberalism. This reflects a failure of radicals to challenge and to convince. Alternatives to Neoliberalism attempts to address the deficit. . . . An interesting and challenging read.”
Thomas Marois, SOAS, University of London
“How can we change the power structures buttressing neo-liberalism? Alternatives to Neoliberalism offers fresh, actionable strategies for sustainable and democratized change.”
