About the Author

Kean Birch, Associate Professor, Department of Geography, York University and Senior Associate, Innovation Policy Lab, University of Toronto, Canada


`Birch's book is full of valuable detail and insight. . . it does an important job of establishing the contours of the discussion of neoliberalism in such a way that anyone reading it will be unlikely to lapse into the lazy straw man forms of commentary which remain all too evident both within and beyond the academy.' -- LSE Review of Books
`Engagingly written, this book offers a refreshing introduction to the intellectual history of neoliberalism. Offering an explanation of where neoliberal ideas came from, the varying ways in which these ideas have been analysed and used, and the core contradictions in the neoliberal interpretation of contemporary capitalism, it will be of great value to scholars and students alike. At a time when market ascendance is increasingly challenged, it also convincingly shows why neoliberalism cannot serve as a road map for the future.' -- Wendy Larner, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
`Kean Birch is, in my estimation, one of the most sophisticated thinkers on the subject of neoliberalism, and in this new book we see him push his thought in a bold new direction that challenges some of the foundational discourses that have attached themselves to the concept. This is a timely and vitally important intervention.' -- Simon Springer, University of Victoria, Canada
