Exploring the genesis of neoliberalism, and the political and economic circumstances of its deployment, Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval dispel numerous common misconceptions.

Only once this is grasped will its opponents be able to meet the unprecedented political and intellectual challenge it poses.
