Editorial Reviews

Review

Henry Giroux has done it again! Against a fastball from Wall Street, the World Bank and the IMF, and the ideologues and practitioners of free market fundamentalism, he smashes a home run. Giroux surgically and decisively dissects the contradictions and the brutal inhumanity and injustice of the free market. He also provides the outlines for a roadmap to get out of this living hell. --Robert W. McChesney, author, The Problem of the Media

One of the most powerful critiques of the current U.S. regime to date, as precise as it is well-documented, as courageous as it is wide-ranging. --Nick Couldry, London School of Economics and Political Science

Henry Giroux is society's teacher and conscience. Refusing the easy divide between cultural criticism and economic analysis, he demonstrates the strategies and techniques by which market fundamentalism is profoundly changing the people s everyday lives and threatening the values that define our common heritage. --Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Format: Paperback
"Against the Terror of Neoliberalism" may be Henry Giroux's most encompassing, incisive, challenging and essential book. It is expansive in terms of the crucial domestic and international issues that are insightfully and rigorously covered, but simultaneous with the wide-ranging discourse is a vigorous focus that runs through every chapter. To read Giroux is to engage one of the leading public intellectuals, educational theorists, and prolific writers of our time. One exits the engagement with this book with a much deeper and clearer understanding of the multiple domestic and international crises and challenges we face, as well as a newly enlivened sense of commitment accompanied by the tools, hope and knowledge necessary to work to overcome these crises and challenges.

Anyone interested in gaining a much deeper comprehension of current economic, political, cultural and educational policies, impacts and directions, and anyone willing to engage, understand and confront urgent questions and concerns about youth, public education, social responsibility, violence, the pedagogical power of corporate culture, emerging forms of authoritarianism, the exploitation of workers and resources, the future, racism, militarism, the dominant media, and possibilities for developing meaningful forms of democracy will find this book thoroughly engrossing and endlessly rewarding.

No short review can capture the breadth and brilliance of this book, nor the intellectual excitement it generates. Engaging Giroux seriously is exhausting and challenging, but only in ways that are invigorating and encouraging, and because of that, all of us should be thankful that Giroux continues his dedicated, persistent and inspired work.

I started reading Henry Giroux back in 1983 and have never stopped. His inaugural book, written while he was only in his 30s, "Theory and Resistance in Education," remains a powerhouse guide to radical education. But nothing prepares us for Giroux's latest work. His "Against the Terror of Neoliberalism" is a red star exploding. Densely packed with brilliant insights into the black hole which is proto-fascist America, the book explains how things have gone badly wrong and where we are likely heading -- unless we abort and radically change course. It seems that Giroux has read everything. Like CLR James, Giroux is a towering people's intellectual who writes with incredible depth and ferocity. One never tires of reading and rereading him. What makes him such a commanding figure is his honest-to-goodness compassion. Giroux embodies Che's idea that love is at the heart of revolutionary change. Long may he write - and lead.

I think if your goal is to get your message over to the Everyman/Everywoman; the Terrified of the Neoliberalism/ Fiscal Conservative; Student; and all Brothers and Sisters of Occupy you really ought Henry A. Giroux bring the price of your books down so what you write (in books) is readily available to Main Street as well as the Ivory Tower Street. The price of this book more reasonable than your others.

Great stuff therein though!
