`Review from previous edition Plant's book is a discussion of the fundamental political philosophy behind the Thatcher-Reagan espousal of free markets...very thorough treatment' The Financial Times `[T]he fairness and lucidity of his discussion is striking.' NE Simmonds, The Cambridge Law Journal `In order to criticise neoliberal ideology, one must first reconstruct it, and this is exactly what Plant does. The result is the most authoritative and comprehensive critique of neoliberal thinking to date.' John Gray, New Statesman
