`Review from previous edition a must read for those wanting to understand the social history of neoliberalisation ... a work of remarkable erudition ... important and impressive' BISA International Political Economy Group Prize Committee `Jamie Peck's Constructions of Neoliberal Reason is a timely, if not fault-free, examination of the secret history and current manifestations of neoliberalism. These manifestations have direct relevance to Britain in the age of post-crash austerity... The first section of the book, concerned with the development of neoliberal ideas, is very thought provoking and provides a much-needed critique of the genesis of this school of economic theory. I would also recommend the book to anyone especially interested in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.' Neil Stewart, British Politics and Policy at LSE `Constructions of Neoliberal Reason is destined to become a classic. In it, Jamie Peck provides a masterful account of an infinitely adaptive free-market project. I know of no other text that is able to tell such a robust social history of neoliberalization; I know of no other scholar so attentive to the 'mongrel' character of market fundamentalism. By foregrounding the creativity of neoliberal reason, Peck is able to demonstrate how this global common sense requires of us all constant analytical and political vigilance. Social science scholars and students will long be grateful to Peck for this much-needed intervention.' Ananya Roy, Professor, Department of City and Regional Planning, Friesen Chair in Urban Studies, Co-Director, Global Metropolitan Studies Center, and Education Director, Blum Center for Developing Economies, University of California, Berkeley `Many fascinating skeletons fall out of the closet in this brilliant genealogy of free-market extremism and its reign as 'common-sense.'' Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums and Distinguished Professor, University of California, Riverside `Most critics of neoliberalism leave the reader mystified as to how such flawed ideas could ever have become so powerful. Jamie Peck is the rare exception; his new book eviscerates neoliberal claims while simultaneously revealing the intellectual tricks and political maneuverings by which an always changing and deeply contradictory doctrine established its hegemony.' Fred Block, Research Professor of Sociology, University of California at Davis
