Globalisation and Ideology in Britain

Neoliberalism, Free Trade and the Global Economy

Craig Berry

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Demonstrates clearly how the idea of globalisation, rather than revolutionising the British ideological landscape, has been incorporated into extant traditions of thought, albeit often in destructive ways
  • Initiates a line of enquiry into the political and ideological aspects of the global financial crisis by showing how interpretations of and responses to the crisis by key political groups have been framed by existing approaches to and understandings of global economic change
  • Invites political theory into the study of political economy by considering the value of ideology as an analytical concept
  • Moves beyond the assumption prevalent in political economy that globalisation discourse is simply functional of national leaders' economic interests and importantly, critically interrogates the relationship between neo-liberalism and globalisation
