John Gray is Professor of European Thought at the London School of Economics.
'The central message is that we are going to hell in a handcart, as free markets rip up established communities. The idea of a world of liberal democratic and prosperous states on the American model is, he argues, a fantasy...Gray is right' Andrew Marr, Independent 'False Dawn is a powerful analysis of the deepening instability of global capitalism. It should be read by all who are concerned about the future of the world economy' George Soros 'This book is teeming with arguments and ideas...it is hard to put down, and economic liberals would do well to test their ideas against it.' Economist 'We needed a powerful challenge to the simple-minded advocates of globalization. Now we have one. A compelling, important and original book' Will Hutton
