Neoliberalism Summary

Neoliberalism: The Key Concepts by Matthew Eagleton-Pierce (SOAS, University of London, UK)

Neoliberalism: The Key Concepts provides a critical guide to a vocabulary that has become globally dominant over the past forty years. The language of neoliberalism both constructs and expresses a particular vision of economics, politics, and everyday life. Some find this vision to be appealing, but many others find the contents and implications of neoliberalism to be alarming. Despite the popularity of these concepts, they often remain confusing, the product of contested histories, meanings, and practices. In an accessible way, this interdisciplinary resource explores and dissects key terms such as:

  • Capitalism
  • Choice
  • Competition
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance
  • Flexibility
  • Freedom
  • Governance
  • Market
  • Reform
  • Stakeholder
  • State

Complete with an introductory essay, cross-referencing, and an extensive bibliography, this book provides a unique and insightful introduction to the study of neoliberalism in all its forms and disguises.

Neoliberalism Reviews

"This book is a remarkable achievement: it organises the best scholarship on and about neoliberalism, summarises the material around a selected group of key concepts, and presents them clearly, comprehensively, and in beautiful prose. This solid academic work has been carefully written for a wide readership. If you want to learn more about neoliberalism, this book is for you." - Alfredo Saad-Filho, SOAS University of London, UK.

"Since 2008, and the government bail-outs that followed the financial crisis, there has been a flood of interest in neoliberalism. Eagleton-Pierce has done a sterling job in identifying the core themes and concepts and putting them into an accessible and readable volume. Highly recommended." - Ray Kiely, Queen Mary University of London, UK.

"In the tradition of Raymond Williams' Keywords, Eagleton-Pierce provides an indispensable guide to decoding the lexicon of neoliberal political-speak. Scholars will find the etymologies highly suggestive, enabling them to contextualize and nuance their analyses of the evolving dynamics of neoliberalism." - Nik Theodore, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA.

"Neoliberalism is a pleasure in its own right. ... It will make a welcome addition to a reference book shelf and can be enjoyed end to end or through browsing from entry to entry, letting serendipity arise." - Barton Edgerton, The London School of Economics and Political Science Review of Books
