Editorial Reviews

Review

The Road from Mont Pèlerin uncovers and lays bare the origins of one of the most important political phenomena of our time--the development of the neoliberal discourse coalition that has come to shape the modern political economy. (Frank Fischer, Rutgers University)

A fascinating and important book, one that speaks in radical, perceptive, and provocative ways to contemporary debates around neoliberalism. (Jamie Peck, University of British Columbia)

This excellent book contributes significantly to our understanding of the origins of neoliberalism and its transformation into political discourse and policy. (Steven Lukes, New York University)

Format: Hardcover
"The Road from Mont Pèlerin" is the first work since the in-house history of the society by Hartwell to trace the origins, meaning, and development of the Mont Pèlerin Society and its role in the making of the neoliberal thought collective, as the editors call it. This collection is therefore first and foremost a work of modern history of ideas. While many people have written critical histories of the meaning and origins of neoliberalism, this work is perhaps the most academic and most strongly researched of them all, and goes beyond the more popular level of discussion of the effects of neoliberal policy in practice and the ways of political power, instead focusing more on the way in which 'neoliberalism' has become a strong and identifiable political philosophy. As the authors of this collection emphasize, it is first and foremost that: not an economic theory, nor simply an old laissez-faire doctrine in a new jacket, but an entire political philosophy and world outlook that is all the more powerful for the obscurity of its real content. Whereas other authors have at times simply sufficed to identify neoliberalism with particular politicians (Thatcher, Reagan, Blair) or with 'free market' policies, as co-editor Mirowski explains in his excellent postface, the philosophy of neoliberalism as it originated as an integral whole at Mont Pèlerin is quite distinct in several ways.Read more ›

A really remarkable history of the last many decades of economics and politics. If you are a neoliberal you will hate it, which is a big point in its favor.
